Ties with India began with Unitarian outreach in the early 1800's. On Sunday, October 15th, Rev. Mike McGee spoke passionately about the Holdeen India Program, part of our International Justice movement. This UUA program provides aid for humanitarian service ventures and social enterprises seeking to advance prosperity for all of India’s people. Education programs, livelihood development initiatives, and project’s promoting access to credit have all received UUHIP support. Many efforts are targeted at the people formerly referred to as ‘untouchable caste.’ To learn more visit https://www.uua.org/international-justice/holdeen.
Pledge to Black Lives Matter
UUA President Susan Frederick Grey recently called on UUA congregations and members to consider financial support for the Black Lives UU movement as part of a far reaching pledge and appeal to promote greater investment in a new generation of leadership. She cites our need to invest in Black Leadership and organizing within Unitarian Universalism, for this is the very leadership that can help move our faith forward in the promise and practice of beloved community—a community which practices radical inclusion within and bold justice leadership for all beyond.
Please consider helping to fulfill our collective commitment to nurture a radically inclusive, justice centered, multiracial and multi-generational religious faith for our time. Gifts can be made at by sending a check to UUA, Attn: Stewardship and Development, 24 Farnsworth St., Boston, MA 02210-1409. Please write ‘BLUU’ on the memo line, to insure that the funds go to Black Lives UU. At the present time, gifts are being matched dollar-for-dollar by a generous $1,000,000 gift from a UU family committed to racial justice.
