Where will you be on Sept. 15?
The board of OR UU Voices for Justice hopes you answer,“At the annual OR UU Voices for Justice Conference.”Or UU Voices for Justice strives to unite all the UU congregations in Oregon to give voice to our shared desire for economic, social, environmental and political justice. And therefore, we gather once a year to bring our voices together at our annual Justice Meeting. This year’s theme is
Our Children, Our Future
and will feature a youth panel discussion.
Additionally, there will be time for raising up our voices in song, lunch and breakout sessions. Take a look at our conference agenda here.
The panel discussion will have three young people who will discuss why they are activists and what sustains them.
Climate Change – Our Children's Trust (Environmental Justice)
Immigration (Economic Inequality, Human Rights)
Gun Safety/School Safety – March for our Lives
Youth have stepped forward in record numbers with amazing influence this year. What can UUs learn from these “in the news” social justice campaigns?
With synergy, we can each take action, multiplying impact and influence!Our suggested Action of the Week: Register for our conference.We need to know how many people will be joining us, and since lunch is provided, what you would like to eat. Click here to go to the registration page.
