A crucial part of the UU experience is Social Justice. Check out events both online and around Arizona that you can support to educate, uplift, and make the world a better place for everyone.

COATS FOR AFRICAN STUDENTS

Dr. Bernadine Lewis (guest speaker at Beacon on October 9th), as advisor to the NAU African Student Association, is requesting your support for the ASA students as we approach winter and the holidays:

  • The students are in need of winter coats and winter shoes/boots. (They were told not to pack winter clothing because they were heading to Arizona.)  If you’d like to donate, a Go Fund Me page has been established to purchase what they need.
  • The students are also Flagstaff-bound for the upcoming holiday break. If you would like to host some students for Thanksgiving dinner on Nov. 24th, please email Bernadine.

LOVE IN ACTION

Our social justice work centers putting our UU values into action… but what do UUs value? In 2020, the UUA commissioned a team to study the principles, sources, purpose, and values of Unitarian Universalism in order to suggest changes to the principles and sources (Article 2) in summer 2023. UUJAZ has been following the proposed changes, and we want to hold space for a weekly conversation to explore our individual and collective values.  Learn more about the Article 2 Study commission hereTo register for the conversation with Rev. Anthony Johnson in Sedona on Wednesdays Nov 9th – December 14th, 10:30am – 12pm, click here.
