UU Ministry for Earth Shares its Deep Resources and Issue Updates Last Updated on 2018-07-18 03:47:26 UU Ministry for Earth had a very exciting and productive time at UUA General Assembly 2018. We want to share the many resources we compiled for you and your congregations to use in your justice-seeking work. From an Environmental Justice tour of Kansas City with local grassroots leaders, to two film screenings of The Reluctant Radical with the film producer Lindsey Grayzel, to over a dozen wonderful workshops and small group “table talks” --- UU Ministry for Earth had a bustling, wonderful time at General Assembly sharing experiences and deepening relationships with so many UUs!

The ultimate purpose of passing UUA General Assembly resolutions, statements, and actions of immediate witness is not the statement itself, but the consequent actions and solidarity... More »
NWDC Hunger Strike Day 3: Retaliation, Vigils, and Hunger Strikers' Public Statement Last Updated on 2018-07-17 18:09:45 This last Saturday, July 14, people detained in the NWDC called for a hunger strike. Today marks the third day of their hunger strike, one of many hunger strikes over the last few years connected to a much longer movement inside and outside the NWDC to end all detention and end all deportations. Retaliation has started against people detained participating in the peaceful action. People detained began the strike on Saturday morning demanding the reunification of families separated at the border, and of those at NWDC, better pay for people detained working in the facility, and nutritious edible food. People detained reported being lured to intake by Geo guards announcing a false fire in their unit. Visitors to NWDC today reported several of them were turned away saying their loved ones “refused to cooperate”, and in at least one instance it was reported the person detained... More »
Amazonians Need Our Voice Last Updated on 2018-07-14 03:08:29   Can we sit back and let this happen? The Amazon rain forest and her inhabitants require our voice and support. She is the great lung of the world containing incredible beauty and diversity, but like the rest of the biosphere she's being murdered. Logging and petroleum extraction are corrupting the culture and the land. Her people are being terrorized, raped and murdered. There are more 500 toxic spill sites there. 80% of the oil extracted there comes to the US.    "The forest is our grocery store.  It is our mother." -- Mirian Cisneros, Presidenta Tayjasaruta   The People of Sarayaku  have announced “Kawsak Sacha: A Native Proposal for Confronting Climate Change”. Please support and share this critical effort by 7/25/18, the date of a conference in Quito, Ecuador determined to convince the Ecuadorian legislature to... More »
