Join us for a faith-grounded discussion and call to action for democracy on Wednesday, April 14, 7-8:30 pm ET/6-7:30pm CT/5-6:30pm MT/4-5:30pm PT.
Today we are witnessing a dangerous swelling in anti-democratic measures across the country. Nearly every state in the nation faces voter suppression bills, states and cities are criminalizing protest, and our immigration and criminal legal systems continue to keep us from the promise of a truly democratic nation. Right now, across the country, the people are rising up to demand democracy, organize their communities and leverage their collective power to move lawmakers and corporations to make change.
This week, the CEOs of Delta and Coca-Cola listened to the communities calling for them to show up for Black voters in Georgia and condemn the anti-democracy bill, SB 202. Kenneth, we win when we work in solidarity. Now is the time to harness the power of love to build alongside frontline communities and to dismantle all the systems that keep us from fully embodying our inherent worth and dignity. Democracy cannot wait!
On April 14, engage with theologians, organizers, and activists doing the work of racial and electoral justice. We must grapple with the white supremacist and capitalist agenda that seeks to dominate our society and threaten the lives and dignity of BIPOC, disabled, poor and other marginalized communities. Unitarian Universalism offers us the moral courage and prophetic possibilities for a just, loving and democratic society.
The panel discussion will be followed by a workshop for mass action across our UU community. Learn how you and your congregation can join in the urgent work of building a democractic society.
Love and courage,
