Every Body is Sacred

SisterSong, one of the foremost Reproductive Justice organizations in the country, defines Reproductive Justice as “the human right to maintain personal bodily autonomy, have children, not have children, and parent the children we have in safe and sustainable communities.”  On this 50th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade ruling that states may not regulate abortion, we’ll explore how UU values support reproductive justice.

Share the Plate

  • The Share the Plate recipient for Jan. 22 and 29 will be the UUA Disaster Relief Fund, which provides flexible support for congregations affected by natural disasters. Our Disaster Relief Fund is part of a covenant between the UUA and congregations, between congregations who give generously and those in need, and with our community partners.  Through aiding our congregations, their members and their community partners, we are able to embody our faith and values.  Recently requests have come from California where heavy rains, high winds, and fallen trees caused significant damage to church buildings.
