We believe that today, more than ever, it is crucial to differentiate between individuals’ and communities’
expression of faith and belief, and the politicization of religion. We have also seen religious leaders and
communities advocate for the most marginalised, including sexual and gender minorities. Indeed, in parallel to
this trend of increasing authoritarianism and fundamentalism, we have also seen increased resistance, including
from faith and belief communities and leaders, rising to the occasion, supporting the LGBTI+ community and
reclaiming space for them, as well as for other minority groups. Amid this violence and in this hostile atmosphere,
some faith and belief leaders and communities have shown up for minority groups. In the context of COVID-19,
the world witnessed the many calls for unity expressed by religious leaders taking action in solidarity with those of
all faiths to address vulnerabilities within our societies. They have demonstrated again that faith traditions and
communities can offer us hope, as they support us to seek to live with dignity and fight against oppression in all 
its forms.

This side event will seek to explore these examples and stories.
