My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Faith Aloud, St. Louis, MO, USA
I have been involved with Faith Aloud for over 4 years and am honored to be a Board Member for this professional, progressive and compassionate organization. The growth over the last three years has been phenomenal and I am eager to be part of Faith Aloud's continued success as we penetrate new markets with our messaging.
Women are not victims of abortion! We are victims of religious ideology that causes shame and stigma around our sexuality and reproductive choices! One huge mission of Faith Aloud is to eliminate the stigma of abortion by creating what I believe to be a paradigm shift for people of faith. The message is that God loves you, Jesus trusts you, you are empowered to make your own decisions and do not require forgiveness for it! It's all so simple!
We also embrace LGBTQ issues from a faith centered perspective; again with the same messaging: God Loves you, Jesus trusts you, You are empowered and you do not require forgiveness. We DO NOT pray away the gay here at this organization! Quite the opposite - we embrace it!
This is one organization I will support throughout my life in some way - either financially or through volunteer work, time - whatever is needed that I may provide.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
re-creating how I personally talk about abortion, reproductive health and women's issues.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
EXPAND IT! Quadruple the membership and donations, get more messages into the public, have more funds to create video campaigns and other marketing efforts, Get our Executive Director on Rachel Maddox, Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert and other liberal media outlets.
