January Social Action Team news

Solidarity Rally and March is scheduled from 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 18 at the Courthouse Plaza in Columbia. Jan. 25 is the bad-weather backup date. Rev. Molly is one of the speakers. The Social Action Team is co-sponsoring this event. Volunteers are needed! As of this writing, volunteers are especially needed to patrol the march. There will be training for this activity in early January. Perhaps this is something for which UUs can volunteer. For information, and to contact organizers to volunteer, the Facebook event is at https://www.facebook.com/events/445931839670915/.

Faith-to-Action (FTA) collections scheduled in January are:

  • Jan. 5: The Center Project
  • Jan. 12: Minority Men’s Network Educational Foundation
  • Jan. 19: Missourians for Alternatives to the Death Penalty

Brief information on each of these organizations can be found here. Remember that if you are unable to attend church service or Forum that day, you can always send in a check any time in January. Make the check out to UUCC, with FTA and the organization’s name in the memo line, and the church administrator will include it in our church’s total donation.
