Justice Advocacy Ministry (JAM) Meeting
Date(s) - Sunday, January 15, 2017
12:00 am - 1:30 pm
Emersonians’ social activism experience varies from beginner to decades of protesting in the streets. This month’s meeting will focus on the basics of community organizing —how to get people together around a common cause, how to run meetings, how to get the word out, knowing what the parameters are for assembling in public, and other important strategies. People new to organizing will definitely want to attend this meeting. Old-timers are invited to share their experience of what has worked over the years and what hasn’t.
We’ve got a long four years ahead of us, and we need to be prepared and ready to meet, organize, rally, protest, lobby, and do whatever we have to do to confront the many injustices that are going to, happen in the wake of the presidential election. Unitarian Universalists have a long history of defending human rights. As the only UU congregation in the West Valley, Emerson will be needed to lead people in the West Valley who are passionate about social justice issues and want to resist and fight the injustices collectively here at home. Don’t miss this valuable workshop.
