The UUCC Forum meets every Sunday from 9:30 to 10:45 in the Library.  We start with a brief  catch-up and social time (about 15 minutes), so if you are a little late (15 min),  it’s OK.  Our topics are mostly about current items and issues. We have an email list where some suggested links are sent prior to the meeting – contact Jeanette Walton to get on the email distribution or for any questions. Each Sunday, we shall be discussing Issues and Events of Interest, from 9:30 to 10:45

Unitarian Universalist Service Committee “Guest at Your Table”
The Unitarian Universalist Service Committee (“UUSC”) is a nonprofit, nonsectarian organization advancing human rights together with an international community of grassroots partners and advocates.  They focus their work on intersecting roots of injustice to defend rights at risk due to criminalization and systemic oppression of people based on their identity. They support self-determination and defend the rights of people displaced due to climate, conflict, or economic hardships; and they respond to humanitarian crises as partners with people whose access to aid is most limited. You can visit their website: https://www.uusc.org/resources/congregations/guest-at-your-table/ to learn all that they do on behalf of Social Justice in our world.

Please make your check payable to UUCC indicating “UUSC-GAYT” on the memo line or you may also give on our UUCC Website at the DONATE bar and selecting Fund “UUSC-GAYT”.  Contact socialaction@uucolumbia.org with any questions.
