Denominational Affairs: Love Resists…an Overview

One month ago the UUA and UUSC rolled out a joint campaign, Love Resists, building on the Declaration of Conscience that many of you (over 14,000) signed (if you have not yet, click here).

At the same time over 600 UU congregations signed up for the #UU White Supremacy Teach-In  organized by UU religious educators of color with support from Black Lives of UU.

Thousands of UUs took to the streets for the People’s Climate March and May Day and we are receiving news daily of congregations voting to become sanctuary and solidarity congregations.

Our movement is responding to the need to ready ourselves for deep, protracted, sustainable and intersectional justice-making—inside and out.

In this issue, we have three invitations to help strengthen your justice work, revive your spirits, build multiracial UU and multi-faith community and defend our democracy:
  1. Join Love Resists monthly Conscience Calls – next one on June 9.
  2. View/host a monthly multi-faith livestream from Rev. William Barber on Reflection, Revival & Resistance and the new Poor People’s Campaign – June 4th
  3. Sign & share a Faith Leaders Letter from the UUA and other faith organizations to Congress to Defend Democracy and Keep our Houses of Worship Non-Partisan.
