We at UULMNJ are excited to be a part of the 2016 Thirty Days of Love campaign, observed from Saturday, January 16 through Sunday, February 14, 2016,Â culminating on the 7th Annual National Standing on the Side of Love Day! Thirty Days of Love 2016: Towards Racial Justice will lift up the ways Unitarian Universalists and many of our partner organizations are building and organizing by taking bold, courageous action for intersectional racial justice.
Follow us on Facebook and Twitter for articles on social justice, words to inspire your commitment, and a look at what other UUs are doing across the country to ensure that there is liberty and justice FOR ALL.
