Faith Speaks: Justice Now for All!
Are you concerned about the climate of racial injustice? Of the injustices that exist in our criminal justice system? About low-wage workers who have to send their children to school sick or go to work in our food service industry when they are sick in order to keep their jobs? About the many problems created by climate change and dirty energy sources? Compassionate options for end of life care? The fact that many of these issues overlap and affect the most vulnerable populations in our country?
After reviewing the results of the 2016 Issue Survey, the UULM-MD Board of Directors is recommending that UULM-MD's 2016 Priority Issues be Criminal Justice System Reform/Police Accountability, Climate Change, Earned Sick Leave and Death with Dignity.
Join UU activists from across the state on January 23rd as we discuss issues of interest to Maryland UUs, how these issues are interrelated and plan for the 2016 Session of the Maryland General Assembly. Participate in advocacy training; develop the faith aspects of your advocacy; increase the voices for liberal religious values in Maryland. Help us better coordinate the efforts of congregations across the state and more effectively involve our ministers, youth and young adults.
In order to be successful, we need your help!
You can register for the Annual Meeting here or you may register at the door.
