7th Annual NW UU Justice Summit

"CALLED TO ACTION"

Saturday, October 7, 2017

University Unitarian Church, Seattle Washington

For many of us, our call to pursue justice has never been more urgent.   We find ourselves in challenging times, often less sure of the road ahead, while at the same time more committed to take action than ever. 

This year we come together, acknowledging this unique time we live in and our role in it.  We gather to hear our own calls more clearly, to broaden our understanding, to consider the challenges, to develop new tools, and to inspire and be inspired by others.

The theme of this year’s summit is Called to ActionUniversity Unitarian Church will lead off the weekend with a pre-event Friday night featuring UU Michael Cox who will recount the story behind his decision to publicly resign from the EPA.  Saturday morning will include a panel of UUs whose personal calls-to-action span issues, expertise, and risk. 

As usual, the heart of the summit will be issue-focused breakout sessions.  This year, there will be three different timeslots for these sessions, giving us more opportunity to go deep for our issues of choice. 

We are also planning an early-bird session during the breakfast hour, Saturday.  Grab a cup of coffee and something to eat, and then join colleagues to discuss how congregational justice teams can gear up for increased effectiveness during this time.

Registration Opens in Early August
