Despite the many political stalemates that stymied the 2015 WA state legislative session, there is still a terrific opportunity to make real progess on climate change...
Expectations for All Network Events/MeetingsLast Updated on 2015-07-29 17:51:27The network is committed to supporting the work, interconnections, and leadership development of all UU activists, including those of youth. Therefore, we ask that all meetings and events sponsored by the network adhere to guidelines that support a safe and empowering experience for youth as co-participants.
These guidelines include:
respect for all participants, their contributions and their development as leaders, independent of age.
youth and adults to remain within a group - never one youth/one adult, unless it is a parent or someone approved by the parent.
no illegal or non-medicinal drugs
no overtly sexual behavior or conversation.
The Network is open to refining these guidelines. Please contact DD Hilke, NWuuJN.Exec@gmail.com with your ideas or post your comments, below.
