Remembering David Kato

by Gwen Ashby

The recent murder of Ugandan LGBT activist David Kato reminds us that hateful voices will remain dominant until we loudly offer the world an inclusive, Christian alternative. Mr. Kato’s murder is a call to action, an opportunity for fair-minded Christians everywhere to tell the world our story of Christianity, a story centered in compassion, peace, respect and unconditional love for all God’s children.

Here are a few opportunities for engagement:

  • Read and share the story of David Kato, chronicled in our recent blog on The Huffington Post.
  • Sign HRC’s Petition to Stop Exporting Hate in the Name of Religion.
  • Join us at David Kato’s New York Memorial Service, Monday, February 7 @ 7 pm – Abyssinian Baptist Church,132 Odell Clark Place (W 138th St).
  • Candlelight Vigil and Procession, Thursday, February 3; 4:00 pm at Dag Hammarskjold Plaza – 5:00 pm at Uganda House.
