Crossing Borders in a Warming World

Saturday, May 22

10AM on Zoom

A surge of immigrant detentions, including many children, at the US southern border. Extreme cold blasted through the middle of the country, hitting Texas hard.

We are living in a time of overlapping crises: a warming world with frequent extreme weather, a world in which children and families have to cross borders to survive.

What can you and your congregation do?

At "Crossing Borders in a Warming World", we'll hear updates on the justice ministries of NH UU churches and our state action network UU Action NH. Finally, we'll also hear about the important connections between the immigration and climate crises from Rev. Ranwa Hammamy, the Executive Director of the UU Justice Ministry of California. We will also have time for questions and answers for all our speakers, music, and time for collaboration.

Speaking Justice in the Language of our Faith: the NH State House and Beyond!

Saturday, April 24

2PM-3:30PM on Zoom

Have you noticed that this year you can testify in the NH State House this year over Zoom? But have you testified? No? Want to change that?

 

Join us on Saturday April 24 with the UU College of Social Justice and we'll go over the importance of testifying for social justice in the language of our Unitarian Universalist faith. We will pay special attention to the speaking demands of our present, COVID-19 moment.

 

This workshop invites UUs to deepen their understanding of the Seven Principles as it connects to their personal beliefs and ideals, then practice speaking about justice work in way that is deeply rooted in UU values.

This workshop is for Unitarian Universalists who want to become more comfortable speaking about their passion for justice in a way that is deeply rooted in the Seven Principles and Unitarian Universalist values, in preparation for public speaking, talking on the phone and writing letters to our public officials

The NH Bail and Bond Fund believes that nobody should be in jail because they cannot afford bail or bond.

In the fall of 2020, the Fund saw a marked increase in need for our services at the Valley Street Jail. At “Getting Free, Staying Free”, we will hear why this is the case and what we can do about it.

UU Mass Action senior organizer Cassandra Bensahih, a leader in criminal justice reform in Massachusetts. A mother whose life has been personally impacted by incarceration, she will talk about the urgent need for change to our incarceration system and why social action matters now more than ever.

A panel of NH leaders will respond to Cassandra’s comments, discussing the state of criminal justice in NH and opportunities for change in NH. Sarah Dan Jones, Director of Music Ministry of Starr King UU Fellowship of Plymouth NH, will provide music.

The proceeds of this event will go to both the NH Bail and Bond Fund and UU Action NH. UU Action NH provides staffing for the fund, including volunteer recruitment and bookkeeping. 

If you are interested in volunteering for this event, please contact us at tristan@UUActionNH.org
