About the call:

At the national meeting of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA), May 22-24, delegates will consider a proposal to change the BSA membership policy.  The proposed change will allow youth to join scout units without regard to their sexual orientation.  However, the policy of excluding out gay adult scout leaders will not change. 

The call is designed for those who support policy change in the BSA and is open to all. It will include information about the proposed policy change and share ways of advocating for a BSA membership policy that includes gay and bisexual youth and adults.

The call will be moderated by Rev. Mike Schuenemeyer, UCC Executive for Health and Wholeness Advocacy and will include leadership from pastors, parents and members of Scouts for Equality.
