Procedure for Issue Group Break-out Sessions - 2014 Summit Last Updated on 2014-08-25 20:28:13What are Issue Group Break-out Sessions?
The Issue Group Break-out Sessions are not workshops in the usual sense. There are no formal presenters for these sessions—although those most interested in the issues will likely come with materials to share. The idea is to allow each group to suggest as many ideas as possible and consider/prioritize options for dealing with the issue as the group sees fit.
How many sessions will be there be?
There will be three 60-minute Break-out Sessions in the course of the day, with four separate issue groups meeting in each session, along with two skill-building workshops that cut across issues.

The building will be set up to accommodate each group with chairs arranged in a circle or... More »

It’s hard to imagine our UU justice work getting easier and more fun during these challenging times, but maybe… just maybe, we can do more, more easily and to greater effect, if we just work together!
That’s the philosophy behind the upcoming Northwest UU Justice Summit, now scheduled for Saturday, October 11th. UUs from local and regional congregations will invest a precious Saturday to consider what we can do individually and with each other’s help to reclaim our government, protect our planet, secure rights, promote beloved community, and more. Why not plan on being there, too!
During breakout sessions, UUs with particular issues of concern (or UUs looking for their next issue!) will gather in issue-oriented groups. Others will engage in interactive workshops to refine skills that cut across issues -- from... More »
