WE RESPOND! At General Assembly 2018, our UUA President Rev. Susan Frederick-Gray issued a CALL TO ACTION, charging us to consider what is the most urgent issue facing our most marginalized communities right now, and how we UUs can step in to do the work that is most needed. Revs. Carie Johnsen, Christina Sillari and Drew Moeller, along with MUUSAN Co-Chairs Julia Fitz-Randolph and Trudy Ferland, put their heads together on this challenge in Kansas City. They wanted to bring home the GA excitement about the critical refugee and immigrant work being done by UUs around the country, and very importantly, how to include all our Maine UU congregations in this work, not just those in urban areas.
We challenge and invite ALL Maine UU congregations to consider how they can deepen their participation in efforts to support immigrants and refugees. To learn more about needs in Maine and the variety of opportunities we may be able to identify to help regardless of our location, MUUSAN’s Racial Justice Group offers a SanctUUary Summit, an educational and planning event to which we invite all Maine UU congregations to send representatives. Please help us respond to the General Assembly “All Are Called” message by encouraging one or more members of your congregation to attend the Summit. THANK YOU!
