Authentic Diversity Resources

Authentic diversity and reinforcing equity culture can look different for a variety of communities and ministries. Our resources have been curated to best help you commit to learn and grow together, celebrating and affirming our differences, and finding ways to seek safety and justice for all God’s people.

Affirming
LGBTQIA+

The Authentic Diversity Committee of the Lower Susquehanna Synod provides resources to rostered leaders and congregations seeking to more effectively welcome and  support LGBTQIA+ people into full equity and inclusion in the church.

Toward Racial Justice

Toward Racial Justice seeks to actively encourage, empower, and equip members of the Lower Susquehanna Synod of the ELCA in and for the faith-based Gospel call to racial justice.

Disabilities Ministry
