The Event is free with code for ADL – YLP Members or $20 for Non-Members
The Westboro Baptist Church is known for its public hate-filled protests. As granddaughters of the church’s founder and pastor, Megan and Grace Phelps-Roper were raised on Westboro’s vitriolic rhetoric and believed it. One day they gained new perspectives from a Jewish internet blogger, and realized they could no longer support the mission. Hear the story behind their decision to leave the church and their family, and now work to build bridges with communities they once hated, including Houston.
