Activism

img_0276hi teachers and committee folks…
i worked on our bulletin board yesterday… it is now overflowing with art,  posters, and quotes, produced in support of the Women’s Marches that will be happening in Washington D.C. and all over the country on Saturday…
i’m going to the one in DC with 2 of my daughters…
Julie, Maureen, and her daughter, Lindsey are attending the march in Washington as well…
(p.s. i will not be at church on Sunday, nor will Maureen, Julie or Lindsey)
my oldest daughter will be at the Boston event… our congregation president and other Old Shippers will be at the Boston event, carrying our “Standing On The Side of Love” banner… the Arlington street UU church will be open as a gathering and warming place…
this is a big deal and something to be proud of… and something we can and should discuss with our children… (revisit the above comments about young women we have raised, that are insisting on being part of this activist event)
i suggest bringing your classes by the bulletin board as part of your teaching on Sunday… perhaps coordinate with one another so you do not all arrive at the same moment.. lol…  but if you do collide? what harm… perhaps the more the merrier…
but… you can use the art and the quotes to stir bits of discussion…
if nothing else, they will have the powerful experience of seeing women… young women and old women… white women and women of color… women in hijab… gender-queer women… on our wall… people who matter… who matter enough to travel and demonstrate for…
activism… it may be a worthy supplement to your Sunday plan…
much love and bright blessings…
