Support LGBTQ+ Students and Allies in Roseville

As you may have seen in the news, last month a far-right-wing activist group targeted an LGBTQ+ youth and family support group in Roseville. The Landing Spot, a non-religious support program of the Loomis Basin Congregational United Church of Christ, has been operating for five years in Placer County including on the campuses of many local high schools to provide resources and safe spaces for LGBTQ+ youth and parents.  


Following the release of an illegally recorded and highly-edited video of Loomis Basin UCC Pastor Casey Tinnin, the Roseville Joint Union High School District has ended its partnership with The Landing Spot. Pastor Casey and members of the Loomis Basin UCC are receiving countless threats of violence and harm based on the video and growing anti-LGBTQ sentiment in the region and across the country. 


LGBTQ+ youth need programs like The Landing Spot. If you are able, consider sending a letter of support to help The Landing Spot continue its lifesaving work in Roseville schools, and donating to help the Loomis Basin UCC overcome this attack.
