Rainbow Sash Alliance USA

The Rainbow Sash Alliance USA is part of the international Rainbow Sash Movement.

  The Rainbow Sash Movement is an organization of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and  transgender Catholics, with their families and friends, who are publicly calling the Roman Catholic Church to a conversion of heart around the issues of human sexuality.

The purpose of the Alliance is to create an elected leadership and board of directors, composed of members of the various Rainbow Sash organizations in the USA, to coordinate the activities of the Rainbow Sash Movement in the US, and to increase its impact.

In addition to coordinating the Rainbow Sash groups in different cities of the USA, the Alliance puts a primary emphasis on working with like minded organizations in other Christian and non-Christian religious traditions, and with secular lgbt organizations in the USA.
