Social Justice Forums
Amnesty International – Write for Rights 2020 – facilitated by Norma Edward, member of UUCLB Social Justice Council and Amnesty International
United Nations Sustainable Development Goals – facilitated by Nasreen Gagner, member of UUCLB Social Justice Council and UU@UN Envoy
Co-Visioning Social Justice – facilitated by Michael Sallwasser, chair of UUCLB Social Justice Council; Rev. Lissa Gundlach, senior minister of UUCLB
While the work of Social Justice continues (It is in our congregational DNA), the character of UUCLB’s work will be reimagined in a collaboration between the Social Justice Council and Rev. Lissa Gundlach.
October’s forum will begin with team leaders and members of the Council sharing views on the work ahead and their thoughts on minister’s role in that work. Rev. Lissa will describe her experience with and understanding of successful social justice work partnerships. Together we will agree how best to integrate her unique gifts, while respecting the other responsibilities of her position as senior minister. All participants, ranging from activists with deep experience and novices eager to learn, can ask questions and make comments as we establish a framework to bring more justice, equity, and compassion to a hurting world.
