CELEBRATING OUR WORK: Calling for Pictures – On Friday December 30th, our partner UU Justice Ministry NC will be celebrating the work of UUs across the state in 2022 during Friday Action Hour. (I hope you’ll consider coming if you don’t work at that time!) As part of that gathering, there will be an end of year slideshow showcasing the work of UU congregations across the state. If you have any pictures that you would like to contribute to that slideshow, please send them to Rev. Lisa Garcia-Sampson lisa@uujusticenc.org

Gathering in Sandburg Hall, September 9, 2022 to hear Rev. Garcia Sampson talk about UU Justice Ministry NC and UU the Vote. She inspired us to send out and additional 2000 postcards before the midterm elections.
