Unleashing courageous leadership and collective power
to realize a just and loving world.
The Don't Shoot Coalition has issued a call to action for people all over the country to show up Aug. 7-10 in commemoration of the anniversary of Michael Brown's killing. The Minnesota Unitarian Universalist Social Justice Alliance--a faith-based social justice organization rooted in Unitarian Universalism--is sponsoring this delegation, but it is open to any members of the community, regardless of belief or religious tradition, who want to participate in solidarity with the people of Ferguson and the nationwide movement for Black lives.
Participants who are not Unitarian Universalist (UU) are warmly invited to join any and all events being hosted by our St. Louis area UU congregations in conjunction with this weekend's events. The portions of the weekend organized by UUs, including the Friday evening "orientation," promise to be inclusive and welcoming to people of any religious background.

We are thrilled that the Rev. Kelli Clement, Minister of Social Justice at the First Unitarian Society of Minneapolis, will be accompanying the delegation as the "spiritual chaperone" and chaplain for the weekend.
