(Lynchburg, VA) Soulforce is pleased to be a co-sponsor of the White House Egg Roll family visibility event, along with Family Pride.

As a co-sponsor with Family Pride, Soulforce will be inviting families to participate in this great American tradition. The Egg Roll is an important event for American families and especially important to Family Pride, the advocacy organization dedicated to equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) parents and their families. It is Family Pride who has taken the lead in reaching out to LGBT families by extending invitations to the White House Egg Roll.

Jeff Lutes, Soulforce’s new executive director, says, "As fathers, my partner and I look forward to joining Family Pride and bringing our son to the White House lawn this Easter, resurrecting the national conversation about real people with real families. We hope our President will welcome the full diversity of American families."

We encourage everyone interested in this event to contact Family Pride as the event organizers. For more information about the event, go to www.familypride.org/eggroll.


Soulforce’s purpose is freedom for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people from religious and political oppression through the practice of relentless nonviolent resistance. For more information go to www.soulforce.org.
