This winter, UUs across the country will gather and take action around 30 Days of Love.
Over the past two months, we have been hearing more and more from folks across the country about the real interest and commitment to scaling up our skills - how we can clarify our own political mandates, how we can be more impactful in our organizing, how people of faith can support and flank social movements in these times, and how we will sustain ourselves and each other for the long haul. Next week, we’ll begin 30 Days of Love with weekly messages to inform and support your work.
A week from now, we know many UUs will gather in their communities, at state capitals and in Washington DC in resistance and solidarity. We are excited to bring you two conversations to ground and inform your engagement and organizing in these times.
Next Wednesday, January 18 at 8pm ET/5pm PT, join Lena K. Gardner, Rev. Ashley Horan and Caitlin Breedlove for Getting More Out of the March: Mobilizing for Resistance a webinar. The conversation will touch on the current political context for mass mobilization and the theological grounding for our organizing today. Please Register Here.
If you’re headed to DC, follow along with Black Lives of UU as well as the UU Convergence at the Women’s March pages for activities taking place next weekend. If you are looking for or organizing a local event, check out the Week of Action page for more details or to add your own actions.
Then on Wednesday, February 8 at 8pm ET/5pm PT, join Lena K. Gardner, Rev. Ashley Horan and Caitlin Breedlove for Getting More Out of the March: Mobilizing for Resistance a debrief. This conversation will frame our recent activities within the broader social justice and organizing while identifying the skills and tools needed in our work ahead. Please Register here.
Stay tuned Tuesday for the first in our four 30 Days of Love messages. We’ll be sharing a message around the themes of movements and relationships, copy of the 30 Days of Love Activity Calendar for families made by Rev. Marisol Caballero and more.
With love & solidarity,
Campaign Coordinator, Standing on the Side of Love
