Woodinville Meaningful Movies Summer Break + Next Movie Last Updated on 2018-07-09 23:55:41 We will be taking time to enjoy the summer too and will resume our 2nd Friday of the month schedule on: Friday, September 14th, 20187:00pm The Occupation of the American Mind Israel’s occupation of Palestinian territory and blockade of the Gaza strip have triggered a backlash against Israeli policies virtually everywhere in the world — except the United States. The Occupation of the American Mind takes a look at this critical exception, zeroing in on pro-Israel public relations efforts within the U.S. Narrated by Roger Waters and featuring leading observers of the Israeli–Palestinian conflict, the film explores how the Israeli government, the U.S. government, and the pro-Israel lobby have joined forces, often with very different motives, to shape American media coverage of the conflict in Israel’s favor. The Occupation of the American Mind analyzes... More »

Families Belong Together Week of Action Last Updated on 2018-06-30 14:32:12   Please join the Families Belong Together mass mobilization on June 30 at a location near you and the week of action in the Puget Sound area through July 7. Many immigrant rights organizations and allied faith communities are joining together to encourage folks to come out to these week of action events, donate, and stand up for families and justice in our immigrant communities. Some Background Information Family separation in immigrant communities in the U.S. is not new, and family detention was also happening under Obama, but the “Zero Tolerance” policy under this administration is a new policy that criminalizes immigrants crossing the border. Family separation was/is also used as a weapon of legal state-enforced human suffering in our black and indigenous communities for many centuries and today. The new Executive Order to stop family separation has no... More »
Join June 30 Rallies for Families Belong Together, Many Locations Last Updated on 2018-06-27 15:09:36 We at Love Resists know three things are true: We know that there is no limit to how low the current Administration will stoop in their drive to criminalize people who migrate. We also know, from Congress and Trump's attempts to temper the outrage on family separation, that our voices are having an impact. Finally, we know that we must be resolved, now more than ever, to continue to be bold in our resistance. Unitarian Universalists are being called in this moment. The recent revelations about child separation at the U.S. border highlight just how cruel and oppressive the U.S. Border Patrol and Immigration and Customs Enforcement are. These institutions have no place in the Beloved Community. That's why we support Mijente's prophetic work to #AbolishICE and to resist a fascist future. Will you answer the call? ​We also continue to support the powerful organizing... More »
Meaningful Movies Port Townsend July Screening: "Happening: A Clean Energy Revolution" Last Updated on 2018-06-27 15:02:44 Please join Meaningful Movies Port Townsend for "Happening: A Clean Energy Revolution" on Monday, July 9 at 6:30 PM in the Quimper Unitarian Universalist Fellowship Sanctuary, 2333 San Juan Ave in Port Townsend. Most Americans understand and accept the reality of climate change. Nonetheless, many of us feel uncertain about what we, as individuals, can do. For many of us, solutions to climate change seem out of reach, out of scale and fatally entwined in partisan politics. Meanwhile, the clean energy revolution is quietly underway. Electricity generated from wind and solar is increasingly more affordable than electricity generated from fossil fuels, and the growth curve for the generation and storage of renewable energy now resembles the exponential curves seen with the advent of radio, TV, and the internet. But can we meet all of our energy needs with renewable energy? How... More »
