UUChurch West Hartford, Connectcut Taks A Stand Against The discrimination of the BSA


May 12, 2003

Scott-

Update-

our Unitarian-Universalist Church in West Hartford, CT.-

worked closely with our Boy Scout troop to have them write and promote a nondiscrimination statement that is consistent with our UU values. They now meet with parents and scouts the beginning of every year to reaffirm that LGBT people(leaders, scouts) are respected and welcomed in the troop. Our church Board of Social Responsibility can take much of the responsibility for pushing for action.We are actually encouraging the troop to have some cultural diversity training/experience (our church could provide it) as part of a meeting. The local Three Rivers council has not made a fuss over this, in fact other troops in the area are going through a similar process of nonndiscrimination statements.

Keep up the good work.

Gary Gianini
