Kentucky Equality Federation is assisting in the coordination of Soulforce Equality Ride's trip to Kentucky and their visit to the University of the Cumberlands on March 28th.

Kentucky Equality Federation was contacted last month by Matt Hill Comer, East Bus Organizer for Equality Ride.

The 2007 Soulforce Equality Ride features two buses that will visit thirty-two schools with policies banning the enrollment of openly LGBT students, including Baylor University, Bob Jones University, Brigham Young University, Yellowstone Baptist College, University of the Cumberlands, and many more.

The Equality Ride stop at the University of the Cumberlands in Williamsburg, Kentucky is
March 28, 2007.

Kentucky Equality Federation will be paying for Soulforce Equality Ride's hotel accommodations during their Kentucky trip, as well as a community dinner on the evening of March 27th in Berea, KY.

Soulforce Mission Statement is "freedom for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people from religious and political oppression through the practice of relentless nonviolent resistance."

"Jason Johnson, who was expelled from the University of the Cumberlands last year for being openly gay will be part of the community dinner and gathering on March 27th in Berea. Jason is very excited about participating in the community events during Soulforce Equality Ride's visit to the commonwealth." stated Jordan Palmer, Kentucky Equality Federation President. "The contribution Soulforce makes to end the misuse of religion to condemn homosexuals is remarkable; we're proud to offer them a community dinner and pay for their accommodations."
