UU FaithAction’s Fall Issues Conference takes place on Saturday October 20, from 10:00 am until 4:00 p.m. Hosted this year by our member congregation, Beacon UU Congregation of Summit (summitbeacon.org), the conference features New Jersey State Senator Raymond Lesniak as our keynote speaker, issues-related break out groups and a working lunch. The Summit congregation is active in antiracism and immigration justice work and we are very pleased to partner together in support of a more just and hopeful New Jersey.
For those new to UUFANJ, the Fall Issues Conference is the premier opportunity for UUs from across the Garden State to learn, discuss, and become involved in the most pressing social justice concerns facing our state. It is the time each year when our six volunteer Task Forces (listed below) decide on their advocacy, education and legislative priorities for the coming year. We work on a collaborative model, so make sure to come help shape the UUFANJ agenda and the outcome of long-term policy and culture change in our home state.
There will be six break out groups during the working lunch to cover the issues we advocate for in Trenton and for our member congregations: Environmental, Criminal, Reproductive, Economic and Immigrant Justice and Gun Violence Prevention. Your attendance and input would be much welcomed and appreciated. Please go to https://youtu.be/2fi3fSU8C5k
