Rev. Karen wants you to know about this opportunity for love in action:
Friends, there will be a Peace March in Kenosha on Saturday afternoon (8/29/2020) at 2:00, organized by the family of Jacob Blake. UUs will meet at the Bradford Community Church (click here for map) at 1:30. Please allow plenty of time to get there, as many or all of the highway exits to Kenosha have been closed, and you’ll need to follow detours. I’ll be there, along with others from our congregation and other area UU congregations. Hope to see you!
The Justice Leadership Team encourages members to work for justice in our community and country during this COVID-19 pandemic. Here are other actions you can take this week, many of which can be done from your own home.
Read the statements from local organizations in response to the shooting of Jacob Blake:
