Unleashing courageous leadership and collective power to realize a just and loving world.
Join MUUSJA & Twin Cities Area UUs for
Twin Cities Pride Festival 2015!
PRIDE 2015 is right around the corner! We know that you are as excited as we are for this festive occasion, and you're probably wondering how you can bring all that you've got to PRIDE!
Well friends, we can tell you that we will not only be Standing on the Side of Love, but we will be marching, rolling, shouting and singing on the side of love while reaching out to the community with our hearts firmly held on the side of love! Whether or not you will be attending Twin Cities Pride Festival yourself, there are ways you can help us prepare for this important outreach opportunity:
Puppet and Sign Making Event for the Whole Family!
Are you crafty? Do you have a fabulous idea for a "sUUperhero" - a fun
character whose superpower is one of our core UU values? Do you want to
have some family fun and help MUUSJA prepare for Pride at the same time?
Then join us for our Pride Puppet Making Extravaganza! We'll meet at First Universalist Church in Minneapolis from 1-4pm. MUUSJA will provide the materials; you just bring yourself and your craftiest ideas! Please RSVP to Ashley Horan by June 18th.
We are also seeking materials donations to make these puppets! Please check out our requested materials list here, and let us know if you have any of these things to share with us.
Help Us Prepare for Pride Weekend
Get the word out to your congregation about MUUSJA/UU-related Pride events! We need Church banners! We'll use these both in the booth and in the parade. Banners will be returned to churches the following Monday or Tuesday. If you have a banner we can use please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Get us your Church brochures to display! (Congregation specific, if you have them.) These will be available to all passersby during the festival. We also need a brochure rack! Unused printed materials/rack will be returned Monday or Tuesday. Contact email@example.com if you have these items to share.
Wanted: Booth Attendants at the Festival, June 27-28
Are you on fire for Unitarian Universalism? Are you excited to represent our inclusive, affirming faith to the larger Twin Cities community? Have you been wanting to try out your "UU Elevator Speech"? Then this is the volunteer opportunity for you!
Volunteers can sign up in 2-hour blocks. We need 2-4 people per time slot. An adult must be in the booth at all times, but teens and children are welcome as well. Sign up for your booth slot here!
Parade marchers/singers/revelers: June 28, 11am
Are you ready to sing, roll, march, drum, chant, and display your UU Pride? Join us for the 2015 Ashley Rukes Pride Parade!
