Today, Dec. 10, is Human Rights Day

After 2nd service on Sunday, our UUCLB Social Justice Forum was hosted by Norma E. who is a member of Amnesty International. We learned about the plight of human rights activists around the world and we helped by writing letters and cards to support them. We had beautiful cards made by one of our church members, Gail K.

Amnesty International will be having a meeting at UUCLB on 12/12/18 in the Lounge at 7 PM and the activity is Write for Rights again. Here’s another chance to support human rights around the world.
