UUJMCA Regional Justice Convenings

Banner_rjt2021_register_750w

Join UUJMCA and our California partners for our 2021 Regional Justice Convenings!

These convenings are an opportunity to deepen our faith-rooted work for justice, learn about active legislative efforts and statewide actions, and take a "deep dive" into UUJMCA's Core Campaigns for 2021 (including: Defund Police, ICE out of California, Fossil Free California, and Medicare for All).

This year we are especially excited to root our conversations & community in a model for putting our love into faithful and intentional action for collective liberation. Through breakout conversations and issue-specific campaigns, we'll have an opportunity to engage in how love accompanies, love resists, and love creates, and where we are called to be as individuals and communities.

Our Regional Justice Convenings include an optional but recommended spiritual grounding virtual potluck on Friday evening, followed by a half-day of programming/conversation with plenty of breaks on Saturday. Our 2021 Regional Justice Convenings will be held on the following dates.

  • Northern California
    • Friday May 14th (evening, optional) & Saturday May 15
  • Central California
    • Friday May 21st (evening, optional) & Saturday May 22

If you cannot attend the convening for your region, don't worry! You can attend another region's gathering, and while you won't necessarily be in conversation with UUs in your area in real time, we'll make sure to get you connected!

We also encourage you to review the Actions of Immediate Witness and a Responsive Resolution passed at the 2020 UUA General Assembly, as they will be engaged in our time together.

More information about these convenings will be made available in May, but don't wait to sign up. Let us know you're interested in attending and when so we can keep you informed!
