The 2020 UUA Ware Lecture
Watch Naomi Klein, scholar, advocate and teacher, give the 2020 GA Ware Lecture with your fellow congregants.
Click Here to Join zoom meeting.
Ms. Klein has written several books on the subject of disaster capitalism - - how free market policies routinely take advantage in the aftermath of economic, political or natural disasters. The UUA, recognizing the relevance of this RIGHT NOW, selected her to give the Ware Lecture at the virtual GA.
UUA President Susan Frederick-Gray declared: “Ms. Klein dares to believe that there is much opportunity in this moment, today. She believes that it is when systems and people are upended in shock that fundamental change can happen”.
WHO WE ARE
Unitarian Universalism is a covenantal, non-creedal religion-- meaning we are bound together not by dogma or doctrine, but by our commitment to be in intentional and thoughtful relationship with one another as we walk the journey of seeking the truth.
As a community that is committed to living, working, and worship with each other in ways that foster individual and collective growth, we agree to live by our covenant.
To create an atmosphere of trust and safety, we agree to call each other back into covenant and to forgive ourselves and others.
We need more voices out here
Amanda Schuber, a member of the UU Church of Huntsville, Alabama, speaking at an event organized to protest the death of George Floyd, said, “We need more voices out here. We need to be out here every day if we have to—to continue to say this is not our America. This is not the country we want to live in where Black and Brown bodies are not valued as much as other bodies.” (Rocket City Now, May 30)
Amaryllis Charles, a recent high school graduate, was among those who joined a protest at Universalist-Unitarian Church in Waterville, Maine. “I am angry and I am hurt,” she said. “These are Black people that look like me being killed in the streets, and the people who are doing it aren’t being held accountable.” (Central Maine, June 1)
Speaking at a public witness event outside All Souls UU Congregation in New London, Connecticut, the Rev. Carolyn Patierno said members of her congregation have been holding witness events for the Black Lives Matter movement for five years and were “out there to raise their voices in solidarity for those who are victims to systems of violence. We understand this to be a moment where we are compelled to speak up.” (The Day, May 29)
UU Charlie Woods helped organize Foxboro Stand-Out for George Floyd and Social Justice this past Sunday afternoon in Foxboro, Massachusetts. “Some people have the perception that in suburbs we are not going to come out and sit quiet in our homes, so it’s really nice to see people willing to come out and stand-out for the cause against racial injustice,” Woods said. (The Sun Chronicle, June 1)
