Margie Winters, the gay teacher fired earlier this summer from Waldron Mercy Academy, on Monday delivered a petition calling for her reinstatement to the Philadelphia Archdiocese. The petition contained 23,000 signatures.

“We ask for full inclusion at the table. And in the church,” Winters said, according to 6ABC. “And we ask now for a moratorium on firing any LGBT employee.”
