Social Justice in Action

We have many activities around Social Justice at First Unitarian Society. Here are some of them.

SPECIAL EVENTS

Active Voices, Tuesdays, 2:15pm. Join others from FUS and the wider community as we engage our local, state, and na tional representatives on issues that matter most to us. If you can’t make it on Tuesdays, join the Rapid Response Network for up-to-date emails on what actions you can take right now.  to be included on the list.

Social Justice Portal – can you help? Our web team invites us to have a dedicated portal on our website for all things Social Justice at FUS. Rev. Kelli could use a volunteer to help make this happen. Good understanding of WordPress is necessary. Contact  if you’re interested.

Spotlight on where & how to focus your activist energy: Folks have asked if there are websites that have comprehensive lists of progressive actions and activities in the Twin Cities. Here are several. You will find suggestions for issue advocacy, numbers for phone calls, local and national watchdog groups, and two of my favorites: the TC Radical Calendar, and Resist MPLS. Both lists include public actions, rallies, trainings, and various ways to organize in making our voices heard.


ABOUT Active Voices

ongoing
Our grassroots group Active Voices got started after the election in November. Join this group and receive Action Alerts on specific issues. You will get clear information about the issue, who to contact by phone, email, or letter to address the concern. You will usually be given a suggestion about what to say. Can you find 5 minutes a day to help make a difference? Join us!

To sign up for the Rapid Response Network and receive Action Alerts, please and look forward to more info soon. You can also find out what the Active Voices group has been up to the previous Tuesday by checking out the newsprint on Rev. Kelli’s office window. There are suggestions there for what actions you might take in the coming week. Many thanks to FUS members Anita Martinez and Mary Ann Lundquist for their efforts organizing this group and helping us all share our UU values with our elected officials.
