|The Soulforce Equality Ride is a two month social justice bus tour that confronts political and spiritual oppression of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ) people. The ride began in 2006 and has visited hundreds of cities, colleges, universities, and other institutions. The 2012 ride will be the fifth tour. This year a large emphasis is being placed on intersectional justice (or the desire to practice social justice in a way that ends all oppression against all people) and community involvement. The participants of the Equality Ride are provided top notch training, transportation, housing, and food throughout the tour. Support from Hit the Road campaign virtual rider pages like this one helps to make the Soulforce Equality Ride possible.

Steve and Chuck have been involved with Soulforce for the past ten years and we have been supporters of each Equality Ride from the first Ride in 2006. We are particularly excited to join in the support of Equality Ride 2012 with the Hit the Road campaign.
We are grateful to all of our friends, new and old, who will be supporting the work of Soulforce through donations to the Hit the Road campaign. Your donations will help assure that the 2012 Riders are able to visit with young adults across the country and bring them the message of love and support for all people, gay and straight.
It is by working together for justice for all that we will help keep the arc of the moral universe bending toward justice and we can’t do it without your moral and financial support.
We invite you to join us in supporting the important work of Soulforce to end religious and political oppression of ALL people. Won’t you consider helping with whatever donation you can make to Soulforce’s work for justice? You will be a blessing to us both and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your support!
