Countering Religious Bullying Aimed at LGBT Youth

Presenter: Dr. Donald G. Hoppe

Sponsor: Interweave Continental

Three quarters of teens report that peers who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender (LGBT), or even perceived to be, are bullied in schools and communities. Frequently this harassment is based in misguided religious beliefs. This seminar presented an overview of spiritual violence against youth and offered guidelines for prevention and intervention.

Countering Religious Bullying Aimed at LGBT Youth is General Assembly 2011 event number 2082.
