Dear Standing on the Side of Love,

On Nov. 19, hundreds of people in East Lansing, Michigan stood on the side of love while three members of the Westboro “Baptist Church” picketed the public high school.

I was proud to see the Standing on the Side of Love yellow banner in the photos and video, and I’m proud to say that several MSU students from the Unitarian Universalist Congregation in Traverse City participated!

Thank you for all that you do!

About 500 community members gathered at All Saints Episcopal Church for a counter-protest to promote unity and diversity in East Lansing. Watch participants talk about why they chose to attend the protest.

  1. I’m so proud of East Lansing! I work for the UU Church of Greater Lansing, which was part of the counter-presence, and I was able to watch the parade from my office window. I was so pleased with the positive response, good humor, and community solidarity that resulted from a small, ugly incident. It was like a pearl forming around an irritant. The transformative power of love was apparent that day.
