John Hilke for Woodinville UU Church Advocates for Social Justice   Take action: Add your name to the call for a military embargo on Israel Israel has once again unleashed the full force of its military against the captive Palestinian population, particularly in the besieged Gaza Strip, in an inhumane and illegal act of military aggression. Israel’s ability to launch such devastating attacks with impunity largely stems from the vast international military cooperation and arms trade that it maintains with complicit governments across the world.

Group Health members needed for action NOW Last Updated on 2014-07-23 15:21:44 In Spokane Group Health Cooperative and Providence Health Care have just announced a jointly-owned entity with a new name calling itself CareUnity. Our concern is that health care in Spokane will be provided not by best practices, but by Catholic doctrine. This merger concerns all of us who are GHC members because all medical staff, as a condition of employment at Providence must commit to the Ethical and Religious Directives of the US Conference of Catholic Bishops (ERD). Those Directives restrict reproductive, end of life and LGBT care. Will the new entity require GHC practitioners to also follow those ERDs? This is our concern. We urge Unitarians in Spokane to ask that question of their GHC doctors and let us know their response: <kateahunter842@gmail.com> We also urge GHC members to sign the resolution created by Concerned Members of GHC which addresses these issues. If you... More »
