Do No Harm
Do No Harm is a national campaign of the Freedom Center for Social Justice. Our organization does work at the intersections of faith, race, and classism as it relates to the LGBTQ community. We are committed to using the Do No Harm Campaign as a means to peacefully oppose laws, institutions, and perspectives that do harm to the LGBTQ community as a whole.
We are asking people to commit to do no harm through interpretation of Holy Text or other religious writings. This includes harm caused on the basis of sexual orientation, gender expression, race or faith tradition.
The Liberating Theologies Speaker Series is an extension of our Do No Harm initiative.
By 2020, we are working towards a 25% increase in places of worship, congregations, faith leaders/clergy, and churches in the South who commit to not doing harm towards LGBTQ people.
Yes, You Can Go
Yes, You Can Go is a restroom safety campaign created by the Freedom Center for Social Justice to identify businesses and other public spaces that affirm the right for transgender people to use public restrooms that align with their gender identity and expression.
Yes, You Can Go was created in May of 2016, as a response to the passage of House Bill 2 — commonly referred to as HB2 — which bans individuals from using public bathrooms that do not correspond with their biological sex indicated on their birth certificates.
The Freedom Center for Social Justice provided businesses with free window signs and educational materials. By signing up, these businesses made a long-term commitment to support the safety of transgender and gender non-conforming people who frequent their establishments.
