Can you join us?
Every year, UUs from congregations from Washington and surrounding states and provinces come together to share a day making progress on the justice issues that matter most to them. Woodinville UU Church is one of several congregations sponsoring the Sixth Annual Justice Summit on Saturday, Oct. 1 at Quimper Unitarian Universalist Fellowship in Port Townsend.
Can you be part of our delegation? No experience needed. Just bring your passion to learn, share and act for justice –and a desire to connect with other UUs following their own justice hearts.
Registration is Now Open. Reserve your place today!
The theme of this year’s summit is “Bridging the Divides: Faith, Party and Privilege.” Join us to explore how we can better connect, understand each other, and work together for a more just and sustainable world. As our morning begins, Rev. Bruce Bode and Rev. Florence Caplow help us understand and reach beyond these divides, so we can better work for justice with those not like ourselves. Poetic Justice Theatre Ensemble then takes center stage (literally) to invite our personal stories and stimulate dialogue and deeper understanding of the divides we face in our justice work and that we strive to bridge in the world around us.
During Saturday’s afternoon breakout sessions, participants will gather in issue-oriented groups to share knowledge, wrestle with challenges, forge connections and refine plans. Ever present in our sessions will be a deeper awareness of how we manage and overcome our many divides to effect more powerful justice work.
Added bonus: It’s Kinetic Sculpture weekend in Port Townsend, WA. Please check out our “Extras” page online to review overnight accommodations (some homestays available), learn about the Taming Bigfoot justice workshop on Sunday morning, and consider attending the Kinetic Sculpture events that culminate in the “race” Sunday afternoon. And, of course, we are hoping you’ll plan to attend one of Quimper UU Fellowship’s Sunday morning services.
