"Indigenous people and minorities have been fighting for decades for people in power to help them against their fight against Climate Change, but they haven’t been listening. How we can help is to listen to them, learn from them, and promote their message. Our government has the power to make legal change when it comes to climate change, but it’s our job to get them to listen to us, so every human has the right to live safely on our Earth."

Caregiver Support Group — First and Third Thursdays of the Month on Zoom, 1:00-2:30 p.m.
If you are, have been, or anticipate being a caregiver for a loved one, you might know what a hard job it can be. Maybe you don’t know what to expect. Maybe you think you finally have a handle on something and everything changes. It’s an ever- present learning curve and a host of different emotions. From whom and what do you draw support? What resources are available to you? How do you take care of yourself?
If you are interested in Unitarian Universalism, we hope you’ll visit us to learn more. If attending our services doesn’t fit your life, you might want to investigate the Church of the Larger Fellowship, a virtual congregation of Unitarian Universalists, with more than 3,500 members around the U.S. They hold online services on Sundays at 8 p.m., and on Mondays at 9 a.m. or 1:30 p.m.
