Justice and Health: Challenges to the Latino/a Family

by

The two parts of this booklet aim to help Latino/a families. This booklet wants to help you to best support your LGBTQ1 family members as they seek to lead the full lives that
God intends for them. Each of the two parts is guided by the Christian values of love, the dignity of every person, social justice, inclusion, acceptance, and human rights.

While many people see civil rights as simply a legal matter, we see the civil and legal rights for our LGBTQ family members as an indispensable context and requirement for them to live full social, cultural, religious and political lives in the Latino/a community and in the wider society. Laws have consequences, and in this booklet we highlight the positive effects of laws on our children and teenagers when full civil and human rights are guaranteed our LGBTQ family members, as well as the negative effects when those rights are not granted and guaranteed.

Valuing Families: Christian Education For the Household of God Curriculum

This curriculum focuses on the API experience of, and commitment to, extended family in community. API families are often extended families in both blood and community, which differs significantly from the dominant model of the nuclear family in the United States. Given this experience of an extended family, it is quite likely that an API individual will be vaguely aware of at least one family member who identifies as LGBT, be it a cousin, an aunt, a niece, an uncle, a nephew, or a long-time neighbor.

This curriculum can be helpful for other racial/ethnic, regional, rural communities that value the extended family as well. In these materials, the educational process does not rely on questions of identity and difference but rather on questions of relationship and connection. How then do we treat each other properly like family members? All other aspects related to LGBT concerns – what it means to be a Christian community, how to use the Bible responsibly, how to think ethically about human sexuality, how to face changing communal realities, and so on – will be addressed from that foundation of relationship and connection.

In that light, all of the sessions in this curriculum involve both “nurturing” and “nudging.” The goal of this program is thus two-fold: to nurture the familial bonds of faith in Christian communities and to nudge those same communities toward an even more expansive view and embrace of faith family relations.
