#RaceAnd Video Series

“#RaceAnd“ is a special eight-part video series that explores the many ways that race compounds and intersects with all the other issues that impact people of color. Each video features an artist, activist or thinker sharing how their mix impacts their lives both personally and systemically. As featured subject Kay Ulanday Barrett puts it, we can’t truly work toward racial justice if we “see race in a vacuum.”



All children in the United States have a right to a free public education regardless of their race, ethnic background, religion, or
sex, or whether they can speak English or are rich or poor, citizen or non-citizen. All children, including undocumented immigrants have the right to go to public school.

Faith Positions in the LGBTQIA+ Community

Religion has been a source of both solace and suffering for many lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) Americans. While most LGBTQ Americans have been raised in an organized religion — and many continue to cherish their faith community — too many have been forced to leave those communities behind because of condemnation of LGBTQ people. And yet in recent years, a growing number of organized religious groups in the United States have issued statements officially welcoming LGBTQ people as members. Many religious organizations also have taken supportive stands on the issues that affect LGBTQ people in America, such as the fight for freedom from discrimination, the solemnizing of same-sex marriage and the ordination of openly LGBTQ clergy.
Lesbian, gay and bisexual adults showed a higher prevalence of disability than did their heterosexual counterparts.

Both lesbians and bisexual women are more likely than heterosexual women to have a disability.


Around 22% of heterosexual men, 40% of bisexual men and 26% of gay men experience a form of disability.


The likelihood of experiencing a disability for gay men and bisexual men are notably higher than for heterosexual men, even after considering their age.

LGBT Homelessness

Family is still family. Love is still love. Many parents and families have a loved one who is lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender (LGBT). When a loved one 'comes out,' it is natural for family members to have questions. As a starting point to address your questions, here are some important facts to know!
LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender) individuals face a particular set of challenges, both in becoming homeless as well as when they are trying to avoid homelessness. LGBT persons face social stigma, discrimination, and often rejection by their families, which adds to the physical and mental strains/challenges that all homelessness persons must struggle with.
