Reserve your spot now by filling out this short form
By Cora Goss-Grubbs
Learn the do’s and don’ts of bystander intervention in this virtual, interactive workshop designed to help learn and practice the skills of reacting in the moment to street harassment. Rather than utilize a one-size-fits-all approach, we also explore context and positionality to help give each individual the tools needed.
The training is led by Courtney Wooten, founder of Suburbia Rising. She has also served as an equity consultant in the Pacific Northwest, focusing on educational spaces, family engagement and faith communities. She serves as a lead organizer with the Edmonds Neighborhood Action Coalition, sits on two Snohomish County Commissions, and is a board member for the Creative Dance Center.
There’s no cost for this training – it’s brought to you by WUUC’s Racial Justice Task Force (RJTF)! The training is limited to 30 attendees. You’ll receive a confirmation and meeting link after you sign-up at https://forms.gle/txFpZXA4jtLoo5ZQ9, and we will start a waiting list if needed. Contact Pam Green at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Sunday Special Collections
In May our congregants raised $575 for Circle Faith Future, an organization chosen by the WUUC youth group. Circle Faith Future provides a healing presence to organizations and communities in Oregon, Washington and Idaho by offering chaplaincy, presentations, workshops, crisis intervention, and/or local conversations addressing climate change, incarceration, poverty, trauma, racism and healing.
On July 18 our special collection will support EarthGen (formerly Washington Green Schools), a nonprofit organization that equips youth to grow their power as change-makers for a healthy environment. Through EarthGen’s science-based, action-oriented programs, young people gain the knowledge, skills, and experience they need to become leaders for climate solutions and environmental justice.
The ASJ Committee thanks WUUC members and friends for their generous support of our monthly special collections, which take place during services on the third Sunday of every month. Instructions for giving are posted during the service, and you can also donate anytime the following week at https://onrealm.org/wuuc/-/give/now, or by sending a check to WUUC at P.O. Box 111, Woodinville, WA 98072. Please make checks out to WUUC and write “ASJ Special Collection” in the notes.
