Jimmy Creech

Pride and Gratitude:
An Affirmation of LGBTQ in a Religious Season

Jimmy Creech has been an extraordinary champion of our community for decades, because he is an advocate for all humanity. In 1999, he was found guilty of “disobedience to the order and discipline of The United Methodist Church.”

He is multi-cultural, interfaith, and is the author of two books. His best known is Adam’s Gift: Memoir of a Pastor’s Calling to Defy the Church’s Persecution of Lesbians and Gays. He has served his community as a Pastor, a non-profit Executive Director, founder, leader, activist, volunteer, and governmental servant. His organizations have included Faith in America, AIDS Services of Wake Co., NC Pride Political Action Committee (now Equality NC), the NC Council of Churches, and too many others to list here.

Join us as he presents a seasonal topic: “Pride and Gratitude: An Affirmation of LGBTQ in a Religious Season.”

The Six Constitutional Amendments
What They Mean to You

and a summary of the drama surrounding the most recent legislative session

Senator Jay Chaudhuri currently serves in the North Carolina State Senate representing parts of Raleigh, Cary, and Garner. He has spent his career fighting for and working on behalf of the people of North Carolina.

Mr. Chaudhuri served as Special Counsel to then Attorney General Roy Cooper, where he led an investigation by all 50 Attorneys General that resulted in a landmark agreement with two leading social networking sites to better protect children from Internet predators. Subsequently, he served as General Counsel & Senior Policy Advisor to State Treasurer Janet Cowell. During that time, Mr. Chaudhuri served as Chair of the Council of Institutional Investors, an association of pension funds with combined assets of more than $3 trillion, which serves as the leading voice for effective corporate governance and strong shareholder rights.
