YUUR Voice in Trenton: Sept. 2014

Welcome back to the congregational year!  The year is kicking off with a bang!  We hope you can join us at these important upcoming events.

The People’s Climate March, “the largest climate march in history”, will take place in New York City on Sunday, September 21.  UUs will be gathering at 10:30 at 58th Street between 8th and 9th Avenues wearing Standing on the Side of Love gear.  Does your congregation have plans to attend the march?  Let us know on our Facebook page where you can find more event info!

Our Annual Fall Issues Workshop will be held on Saturday, September 27.  Registration is open through the 22nd.  This year’s keynote speaker is ACLU New Jersey executive director, Udi Ofer.  You will also have an opportunity to discuss and set task force focus issues and meet other social action UUs from around the state.  Plus, get a sneak peek at the new UULMNJ cable access series!

October is Month of Resistance to Mass Incarceration, Police Terror, and the Criminalization of Youth.  Many congregations have scheduled events or partnered with local organizations.  If this is a cause you are passionate about, consider joining our Criminal Justice Reform – Ending the New Jim Crow Task Force.  What is your congregation doing? We want to hear from you!
