September 2016 UUANI Action Newsletter

Unitarian Universalist Advocacy Network of Illinois - UUs across Illinois are coming together to work for justice, beloved community, and a healthy planet, putting our deepest values into effective action.The September 12 National Moral Day of Action in Springfield, Chicago, and 30 other cities was a success! Diverse faith leaders and people impacted by injustice came together to raise the level of public discourse to higher ground, away from extremist politics and policies that benefit the few and toward policies and laws that value people and the planet.

UUANI led the Day of Action in Springfield, where we mobilized 120 people from 6 faith traditions, 7 organizations, and 15 geographic communities around the state (including over 70 UUs from 12 congregations) – an important step as we pursue building a fusion coalition in Illinois.

See photos and more in our Facebook group – where we encourage you to get into conversation with other UUs around the state about promoting our values effectively in the public arena!

UPCOMING OPPORTUNITIES
