Take Back the Bridge for Everyone

This past weekend, TJP founder Stacey Prince and her partner Teri Mayo organized an event called Take Back the Bridge... for Everyone. Originally an event co-sponsored by the Seattle/King County Crisis Clinic and Vine Christian Ministries, Stacey and Teri thought it was very important to raise awareness in the community of suicide risk factors for LGBTQI youth and adults, and also to call attention to the detrimental role that faith communities can play when they promote messages of intolerance. The event was very well attended by 40 people including TJP co-founder Anne Phillips and several other TJP members. It was a success in increasing visibility of issues of critical importance to LGBTQI individuals. It received news coverage and fostered much discussion on the internet.
