Led by the League of Women Voters (LWV) of the Mt. Pleasant Area, we will learn about petitions that would make voting more difficult and those that would increase access to voting. Most importantly, we will discuss what each of us can, and must, do to help maintain voting and our democracy here and in other parts of Michigan, thus supporting voting rights for ourselves as well as for multiple marginalized people in Michigan. Please plan to attend this important kick-off to UUFCM’s voting rights work on Tuesday, March 1, at 7pm on Zoom. Find the link on the UUFCM calendar.
On Sunday a special plate collection will be taken to support the work of MUUSJN, the Michigan Unitarian Universalist Social Justice Network. MUUSJN is a very active state-wide network of the 26 Unitarian Universalist congregations and allies in Michigan who work together for progressive change. Its mission is to foster the worth and dignity of people by promoting social justice and community service. You can donate online to the Social Justice Special Plate Collections Fund at our website or checks can be sent to our treasurer made out to UUFCM with MUUSJN in the memo.
We are also very much encouraging individual people to become members of MUUSJN. The work of the MUUSJN director and the three project organizers we employ has led to many accomplishments each year that support our UU values. Thus, when you become a member, you spread your small donation well beyond our UUFCM walls.
