Unleashing courageous leadership and collective power
to realize a just and loving world.
It's that time of year again! The 2016 Twin Cities Pride Parade & Festival are just around the corner, and as we have for the past several years, MUUSJA is serving as the convener for the Minnesota UU Community who would like to march and witness together in affirmation of our faith's unwavering affirmation and celebration of LGBTQIA+ people. Together, we represent Unitarian Universalism and our radically affirming message to the thousands of people from around the state and region who attend Twin Cities Pride, many of whom have been told that they will never be accepted by a faith community. We want YOU to join us in celebrating the entire, beautiful rainbow of identity and love, and extending that UU affirmation to everyone at 2016 Pride!
The 2016 Ashley Rukes Pride Parade will take place at 11:00am on Sunday, June 26th. MUUSJA has already secured a place in the Parade lineup, and we have space for up to 50 UUs to join us in this fun, family friendly tradition! This year's theme will be "Unitarian Universalism: At the Intersections of Love, Spirit, and Justice." We would love to have delegations from ALL our metro-area congregations--and any from farther afield who would like to join us! Congregations are encouraged to bring your banners and wear your Standing on the Side of Love t-shirts.
Please register here to make sure that you receive updates about where exactly to find us on the morning of the parade, and other logistics.
