"Queer UUs and friends, building up connections, breaking down oppressions"
Interweave Continental is a membership organization actively working to end oppression based on sexual orientation and gender identity, recognizing that we will not be free until all oppression is a thing of the past. Our work is guided by Unitarian Universalist principles. We value and affirm the lives and experience of queer people of faith of all ages, races, ethnicities, income levels, and abilities. By providing and supporting leadership, and working in collaboration with other organizations of similar vision, we strive to connect and nurture all queer individuals, communities, groups, and their allies.
To that end, we host events at General Assembly, hold an annual Convocation, connect a national network of local chapters, and offer print and online resources, networking opportunities, and support.
