Social Justice News -- March 2018

UF BATEMAN TEAM PRESENTATION: Sunday, March 11, 12:30-2:30, Sanctuary
The Bateman Team of students from University of Florida College of Journalism will present a program Happy Endings: A Childhood Cancer Dialogue. Meet inspiring cancer survivors during an intimate dialogue! Be part of the solution — help every child with cancer have a happy ending to treatment!

TOWN HALL MEETING ON FAMILY PROMISE: Sunday, March 25, 12:15,-1:15, Sanctuary
A Town Hall Meeting on the subject of Family Promise will take place after the service. At our Congregational Meeting in January, our vote on whether to continue as a host church barely passed, 14 to 12. We must face the question: does this program have enough support by UUFG members? Or should we find another way to practice Social Justice in the community? Jayne Moraski, Director of Gainesville Family Promise, will be present to answer your questions and concerns. We need a good turnout for this very important conversation. Mark your calendars and plan to attend!

At our Congregational Meeting in January, we asked congregation members to vote on what Social Justice work you would like UUFG to work on in the coming year. Economic Inequality/Poverty got the most votes, followed very closely by Corruption of Our Democracy, Climate/Environment, and Race/Racism in almost equal numbers. To find out about current work in these areas please take a look at the Social Justice display and bulletin board in the Phillips Social Hall, and get in touch with leaders who are listed there so you can be part of the ongoing solutions!
