Lotus Rising is recipient of Aug. 13 offering

Social Justice and Action Sunday’s “third-Sunday” offering will take place on Aug. 13, as many people will attend Camp Latgawa on Sunday, Aug. 20. Lotus Rising Project will be the recipient in August. Executive director Mario Fregoso (he/him/his) will speak during the Aug. 13 service.

Lotus Rising Project was created by youth and mentors who wanted to make a positive impact on social change in Southern Oregon. “The founders saw a need for changes in our communities, our agencies and our services for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and ally people,” according to Fregoso. “We began as an independent youth group with a passion for creating something larger, that would give back to the entire community.”
