Affirmation Brazil fights against all the evils that plague our LGBTQ+ Mormon community, with the Symposium on Suicide Prevention being no different.
Affirmation Brazil is rolling up their sleeves to do something in their country to help these people. We are hosting a symposium and inviting other organizations helping the LGBT population on September 25th in São Paulo.
