Statement from Rev. Adriene Thorne

“We at The Riverside Church in the City of New York, are proud to cohost the 5th Annual NTVM Empowerment Service, and we look forward to standing alongside our trans and non-binary siblings, allies, and co-conspirators as we collectively work towards a more compassionate and equitable world. In a world where many voices are silenced or marginalized, it is our duty to create spaces where every voice can be heard, every story can be shared, and every person can find support, love, and justice. This event is a testament to our dedication to this cause, and it serves as a reminder of the power of faith in action. May this service be a source of inspiration, enlightenment, and empowerment for us all. ~Rev. Adriene Thorne”
