Friday Social Justice Gatherings: “The Friday Flame”Social Justice Gatherings - Beginning Sept. 17, from 5 to 6:30pm on the third Friday of every month, all are welcome to gather on Zoom to share hopes, worries, fears, plus ideas and plans related to social justice. We’ll have time to share what’s in our hearts and on our minds, plus each social justice group will provide updates. This is a time for learning, reflection, and cross-pollination about social justice. Adding to our efforts to mobilize for the 2022 election, reverse climate change, and achieve racial justice, right now thousands of Afghan refugees and asylum seekers are arriving in the U.S. With all these challenges, what are we called to do as Unitarian Universalists? And how will we do it - together? FMI: contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and ask to be connected to Dave Roitman.
