The Unitarian Universalist Service Committee (UUSC) is recognized worldwide for its advocacy and grass roots partnerships to further its three strategic priorities: international justice and accountability, climate and disaster justice, and migration justice. Since its founding in 1940 to help assist European refugees endangered by Nazi persecution, it has worked in the USA and internationally on the front line of advancing human rights and justice. UU congregations worldwide support the UUSC as our agent for change.
This is a wonderful opportunity for our congregation. Rev. Mary Katherine Morn, the President and Lead Executive of UUSC, will spend the afternoon of February 9 with us, to give a presentation on their current work, their priorities, and her view of overall progress toward equality around the globe. The format will be casual, a short presentation followed by a Question and Answer. The presentation will begin at 1:30 p.m.
We rarely have a visitor from the top echelon of the UUA infrastructure, and one who does such interesting work on vitally important issues. Please plan to attend, and bring your questions with you.
Please let Karen Woolhouse know if you plan to attend so we can plan space and food for the event. Rev. Cynthia will attend and is inviting the Tri-UU congregation to join us for this opportunity. Please also feel free to invite friends and family to attend with you.
