UUA Justice News & Events

ICYMI. Here’s the latest from UU the Vote:

We sent our last postcards and letters of the election season yesterday to voters in Georgia for the Runoff Election. The final Big Send of 2022 had letters and postcards full of notes of hope, faith, love, justice and democracy. We sent those letters as a prayer for a better democracy and a better future and we truly thank you for taking the time to write and send them all. If you haven’t reported your postcard or letter writing efforts, please do that here.

Now that the postcards and letters have been sent, we can’t just sit and do nothing. We have seven days before the Georgia Runoff Election and voting has already begun all over the state. Last night, UUs partnered with Center for Common Ground to call voters in Georgia to let them know you can vote early. Volunteers informed voters of the election dates, helped them find their polling places and heard encouraging stories about why folks are voting!

UUA Monthly Board Meetings

One way the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) Board of Trustees serves the more than 148,000 members and over 1,000 member congregations of the UUA is through open communication and transparency in its own work.

To further encourage this open dialogue, the Board hosts monthly Open Houses. All are invited to attend and participate. Bring your comments, questions, and suggestions, and chat about the Board’s work and the Unitarian Universalist (UU) issues that matter most to you. Beginning at 7 p.m. EST, the Open Houses are generally the second Tuesday of each month (except on the third Tuesday in November 2022). 

Find the link to pre-register (required) for upcoming meetings dates on the UUA website.
