Carpenter Initiative on Gender, Sexuality and Justice

QCinemaBrite Divinity School is proud to be the first Disciples of Christ seminary to be named a GLAD-affiliated seminary.

The Carpenter Initiative promotes conversations about healthy sexuality, enhances ministries with diverse communities that include bisexual, transgender, lesbian, and gay persons, and provides sanctuary and encouragement for ongoing dialogue and justice-oriented practice. The three areas include: 1) events for Brite’s community of students, staff, and faculty; 2) public opportunities for constituencies beyond Brite as well as for the Brite community; and 3) courses for our students in multiple degree programs.CI3 CI2
