Social Justice Roundtable
UUSJ invites Social Justice chairs and others actively engaged in social justice to join together to share information and concerns. This will be a chance to learn from your peers and focus on the nuts and bolts of social action work in our congregations. You will not be hovering at 30,000 feet—you will be down on the ground! After sharing concrete experiences of success and failure, you will participate in an in-depth discussion of an issue directly related to your day-to-day work. The registration page will ask you to provide information about yourself and your congregation as well as first and second choice of discussion topics.
