Meaningful Movies Port Townsend May Screening: "Salmon Confidential" Last Updated on 2018-04-23 02:46:17 Please join Meaningful Movies Port Townsend on May 14 at 6:30 PM for Salmon Confidential, an investigation of British Columbia’s declining wild salmon population and the possible government cover-up of what is killing them. When biologist Alexandra Morton discovers salmon in BC are testing positive for dangerous European viruses, she finds that rather than alerting the public, the government instead seems more interested in suppressing the findings. Salmon Confidential documents Morton’s journey as she attempts to overcome government and industry roadblocks and works to bring critical information to the public in time to save BC’s wild salmon. The film provides surprising insight into the workings of government agencies, and rare footage of bureaucrats tasked with managing the safety of our fish and food supply.

Opening Our Hearts and Homes to Refugees at Our Border Last Updated on 2018-04-23 00:15:56 A caravan of individuals and families is currently making its way toward the southern border of the United States. Hundreds of adults and children are fleeing violence and political repression in their home countries in Central America, especially in Honduras. Many hope to ask for asylum when they reach the U.S. border. The Trump administration's response has been to send the national guard to an already militarized border. But we know that we are all connected and it’s time to have each other’s backs. While hate tries to close our borders, we are opening our hearts and our homes. Join us as we follow We Belong Together and Pueblos Sin Fronteras to say resoundingly: "You are welcome here.” Housing and other support are urgently needed in these areas: Phoenix, AZ; San Francisco, CA; Denver, CO; Boston, MA; Baltimore, MD; Newark, NJ; New York, NY;...

Edmonds UU Challenges Other Congregations to Collect I-1631 Signatures (Wash.) Last Updated on 2018-04-19 15:46:30 Attention UU Congregations: Many of you already are involved in the effort to get I-1631 on the ballot so we can have a just energy transition in Washington State. At Edmonds Unitarian Universalist Church we challenged every member to get at least 5 signatures on the signature form they all received as they departed last Sunday. They were inspired by a sermon by Reverend Eric Kaminetzky that roused their commitment.  In the past, EUUC has collected over 2,000 signatures. Let’s get all of our congregations on board and challenge ourselves to collect over 10,000 signatures statewide. If you’d like to sign your congregation up to tally our totals contact PeaceandJustice.rsvp@euuc.org More information on the initiative can be found at: https://yeson1631.org     More »
