Our local outreach has included hosting homeless LGBTI youth in a partner program called New Alternatives; offering space for AA and Alanon to meet; partnering with The Momentum Project to care for people living with HIV/AIDS; providing back-to-work clothing for those in transition; and feeding ministries such as Butterfly lunches at Tompkins Square Park and our Sunday Food Pantry that give much needed help to the poor.
Our national outreach includes our ongoing commitment to the just rebuilding of the Gulf Coast. We send a team there each year. We celebrate the Heritage of Pride all year long, as we advocate for both marriage equality and civil rights for LGBTI persons. Each year we have a float in the PRIDE March.
We advocate for the rights of children, the poor, the disenfranchised and the homeless and send our clergy to speak and teach around the country in such places as Princeton Theological Seminary on television (GRITtv) and at the Children's Defense Fund's Haley Farm. We will be launching a Children's Defense Fund Freedom School. We hold a national conference each year with our partner, The Middle Project, to support leaders who work to end racism in multiracial congregations.
International outreach includes work with HaitiCorps International, the Japan Society, and The Charles Decker Foundation, which works with Orfanato Niños de Cristo in the Dominican Republic. We also support the reconciling work of congregations in our Reformed Church family in South Africa, training leaders in United Ministries at The Uniting Reformed Church.
