Review for Faith Aloud, St. Louis, MO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been involved with Faith Aloud for 7 years now. I have watched the organization grow to become nationally recognized through grassroots efforts, largely led by Executive Director- Reverend Rebecca Turner. Faith Aloud (previously Missouri Relgious Coalition for Reproductive Choice), for years, has been seeking ways to give voice to the challenging (and infrequently discussed) issues surrounding sexuality and religion. They have done this through religious counseling, educational services, community outreach, and political activism. As an organization they have provided a safe place to discuss difficult issues within the context of faith. They have struggled to provide support for women and their families who have made the difficult decision to have an abortion. They have provided education in the form of clergy-created literature and videos offering support as well as information on what different relgions really say about a woman's right to choose. Faith Aloud is a unique voice in the crowd- offering something so greatly needed and so rarely offered- a supportive voice for reproductive issues grounded in faith. Until working with Faith Aloud, I thought it was impossible to find a church that shared my view on God and politics. Not only have I seen witnessed this organization helping others, but through my work with Faith Aloud- I have reclaimed my faith and come to understand that my politics are supported by my religion.
