Invitation from: Unitarian Universalist Justice Arizona Network
Saturday, October 27, 2018 | 9 a.m.–4:15 p.m.
Unitarian Universalist Church of Surprise, 17540 N Avenue of the Arts, Surprise AZ 85378
We invite you to join UUJAZ and your fellow UUs for our illuminating Issues & Action Day 2018. Our focus this year is on the upcoming election and the pressing issues being decided.
The morning will feature Unitarian Universalist religious leaders from around the state speaking on the intersection of our values and key justice issues:
Our UU Values and Immigration: Rev. Matthew Funke Crary
Rev. Mathew, Minister at UU Congregation of Green Valley in Amado, was responsible for the design and implementation of Justice District Assembly 2017 with a focus on the borderlands. The congregation in Amado has also companioned three transgender asylum seekers over the last three years.
Our UU Values and Water: Rev. Lisa McDaniel-Hutchings
Rev. Lisa has been a director of UUJAZ since its inception in 2014. She previously served an environmental ministry, and is the convener of UUJAZ’s Water Action Team.
Our UU Values and Racial Justice: Rev. Karla Brockie
Rev. Karla is the recently retired Minister of the Granite Peak UU Congregation in Prescott. Under her leadership, the congregation engaged in “Building the World We Dream About”, an adult faith development course on anti-racism and multiculturalism, as well as white supremacy teach-ins.
Anne Schneider will also discuss the initiatives on the November 2018 ballot, and those that are not, and present her highly acclaimed and very entertaining “What to Expect at the Legislature Next Session.”
