Sutherland joins LGBT pastor for ‘Inclusive Freedom’ event at BYU

April 5, 2019

“How do we start solving problems?” asked Derek Monson, vice president of policy at Sutherland Institute, at an event this week. “It’s not by turning to our Capitol, it’s about turning to our communities. Start building relationships that increase our understanding.”

Monson was invited to participate in the event, “Inclusive Freedom: Protecting Religious Freedom + LGBTQ Rights,” on Wednesday, April 3, at The Center for Conflict Resolution at Brigham Young University.

Monson joined the Rev. Marian Edmonds-Allen, Executive Director of PARITY, which is an organization that assists other organizations of faith to become more LGBTQIA sensitive.

A video from the event is available to watch below.
