Tomorrow, May 3rd, 2016 at 12:00 AM is the start of Give for Good. Give for Good is a 24-hour online giving challenge led by the Community Foundation. During this 24-hour period, donations made to participating non-profits like PACE are augmented with funds from The Community Foundation.
PACE strong opposes Mike Johnson's “Pastor Protection Act.” This is a “bait and switch” bill that covers many more people than pastors who can already freely discriminate in performing marriage ceremonies. Clergy are already free to refuse to marry any couple based on religious belief. This bill with vague wording would enact a new statute that allows widespread discrimination based on religious beliefs about marriage. View the bill here.
The next PACE membership meeting is scheduled for Sunday, April 20th, at 3:30 PM at the Betty and Leonard Phillips Deaf Action Center in Shreveport (601 Jordan St).
