Hatred to Hope:  Leaving the Westboro Baptist Church


Phelps-Roper was raised in the Westboro Baptist Church, a controversial American church known for its inflammatory rhetoric and homophobic beliefs.  The daughter of the organisation's spokesperson and granddaughter of its founder, she was one of the church's most prominent members before leaving the organisation in 2012 alongside her sister, Grace.  No longer a practising Christian, she now works as an activist to overcome religious and political hatred and division


Her book Unfollow: A Journey From Hatred to Hope, leaving the Westboro Church is released this October, and will be available for purchase at a book signing following this event
