From the Upper Peninsula of Michigan to the hills of the Ozarks and from issues of the environment to issues of gay marriage, racism and oppression the congregations of MidAmerica are doing the work of social justice. The MidAmerica Region aims to tell the story of this work, and form, with those leaders working on this, a learning community to extend and deepen the work.
MidAmerica Region is proud to announce a series of social justice webinars that are being done in collaboration with the Minnesota UU Social Justice Alliance.
Executive Director Rev. Ashley Horan and Statewide Organizer Pastor Danny Givens will help all our congregations prepare themselves better for social justice work.
These 75 minute webinars will be monthly, on the second Tuesday. Make sure to register for these webinars as space is limited! Details of the webinars are below, and each starts at 7:45 pm Eastern, 6:45 pm Central, 5:45 pm Mountain times. Webinars will be recorded, and will be available on demand for those unable to attend.
