STAND wishes to take the opportunity of Thanksgiving to say a prayer of thanks—thanks to members, friends, supporters, fellow faith groups and all people working to bring others together; to help their fellow man; to show that we are more alike than different; to make religious freedom a reality; to be true to their beliefs; and to be a force for unity, integrity and love.

May it be a day of warmth, peace, gratitude and happiness.

“In the spirit of togetherness in which this holiday was born, STAND wishes a wonderful Thanksgiving to you and to all whom you hold dear,” said International STAND Director Edward Parkin. “May it be a day of warmth, peace, gratitude and happiness.”
