Hosted by the Unitarian Universalist Societyof Iowa City

If you are a young person age 12-18 (7th to 12th grade), we extend a special invitation to you to attend the Social Action Conference held in conjunction with the PSD Annual Conference. The primary focus of the SAC will be the impact of oppression on our modern educational and social settings. Be ready for interesting speakers, movies, and discussions.

SAC activities will overlap those of the adult meeting. Youth will attend the Saturday evening banquet and entertainment, and will lead the Saturday night worship service. Youth registration includes breakfast, lunch, snacks and dinner on Saturday, and breakfast on Sunday.

Housing and SAC activities will be at the historic UUSIC building, a four-block walk from the Sheraton Hotel, the site of the PSD conference.

The youth registration fee is $50. Each youth attendee must agree to follow the conference guidelines (below), and must have a sponsor from their congregation who is also attending the PSD conference. Sponsor responsibilities include attending the Friday night orientation session, maintaining contact with youth, and supporting youth during the weekend.
