In 1982, Affirm was formed to support individual lesbian and gay members of The United Church of Canada and to advocate with the church for their full inclusion.
Affirm's mandate is:
EDUCATION: to promote greater awareness of sexual orientation and gender identity issues.
ACTION: to work to end discrimination against people in church, society and our own organization.
SUPPORT: to help people of all sexual orientations and gender identities find support and community within the United Church.
As East End United we are honoured to be a part of this progressive legacy. We are justice-oriented and aim to bring more inclusivity to our services, causes, and actions. We offer support to people of all sexual orientations and gender identities. You can identify as LGBQ2S+ and have faith. All are welcome to explore their faith in a supportive environment.
