Justice Saturday

Welcome to Justice Saturday! with Rev. Marian

Each week, we will feature a different aspect of how we do justice at First UU. There will be ideas to ponder, actions to take, and activities for all ages.

What does justice look like while sheltering in place? There is a huge divide in how this plays out. Some can escape to other places; some stay at home – with or without kids, internet, food; while others go to work at essential jobs. Justice includes reaching out, noticing, and saying “thank you”. We all know that some are losing jobs and work hours. Some have lost childcare even though they still have to go to work. Reach out. Help where you can. And never forget gratitude, especially to our essential workers and healthcare providers.
