Justice on Earth
Sundays, January 13 and 20 at MLUC
Join us for a group discussion on this year's UUA Common Read: Justice on Earth: People of Faith Working at the Intersections of Race, Class, and Environment. "At a time when racial justice, environmental justice, and economic justice are seen as issues competing for time, attention, and resources, explores the ways in which the three are intertwined. People and communities on the margins are invariably those most affected by climate disaster and environmental toxins. The book asks us to recognize that our faith calls us to long-haul work for justice for our human kin, for the Earth and for all life." Childcare available upon request.
