Unitarian Universalists and OCCUPY Movement?

UU’s and OCCUPY MOVEMENT
page.


Question:  Any of your congregations, members and/or clergy getting involved in Occupy Wallsteet, Occupy Boston, and beyond?

If you are pro revolution, this is one of those situations where individual UU’s and our congregations need to lead.  If you want to see action, you need to organize locally, network nationally via social media, and rock it grassroots style.

According to comments on the Unitarian Universalist Association’s Facebook page (Monday at 9:50am)  the UUA is not going to be taking action on this one.

If you want to organize, you might start a Facebook group to share plans, resources.  If you do, let me know.  I’ll be happy to share it.

As for actions, so far I have heard that this Sunday UU clergy will be leading vespers at Occupy Boston,

How UU’s in NYC Can Help

I’ve heard via Facebook that there is a “church tent” at Occupy Wallstreet.  Beverly tells me that as the weather turns cold they have a great need for hot water carafes.  She says, “yes, they should bring tea/coffee carafes to the church tent… it’s hard to give directions within that sort of environment… BUT the church tent is on the south station end of the community… the park is quite small and everyone is happy to direct you…”

UU Coverage, Action
