Welcome to Our Stories, the new SSL Blog Roll!

Welcome to Our Stories, the new SSL Blog Roll!

We are excited to share our new blog roll with you, called Our Stories! Since the start of the campaign, sharing stories from our personal, lived experiences has been a core way that we have learned how to better stand on the side of love with each other.

You'll be glad to know that many stories from our old blog roll can be be found here, and we are working to archive all the stories from our past site so we can continue to access them in the future.

We also invite you to share YOUR story with the Standing on the Side of Love community. Here are some ideas on the hows, whats and whys of sharing your story!

Together on the Side of Love

Together on the Side of Love

2014 has been an incredible year for Standing on the Side of Love. All across the country, the Love People have worked hard to build the Beloved Community. From January, when we kicked off Thirty Days of Love with a renewed commitment to voting rights, through the spring with lots of actions on immigration reform, to celebrating our fifth anniversary at the UUA General Assembly, it’s been a busy year for love! In July dozens of UU clergy got arrested for immigration reform in front of the White House, then September saw the largest ever People’s Climate March, with hundreds of UUs. Together, we held vigils from Boston to LA following the killing of Michael Brown and the grand jury decision in November, and we are ending the year filled with both frustration and hope. This web-based magazine is a look back at 2014 as an opportunity to honor and celebrate all of the hard work of Love People all over the country.
