Social Justice Programming -- March 2019

March 5 (Tuesday)
Nominations are due for Share The Plate 2019-20. Each year UUFG members choose 10 organizations to which to donate all undesignated offerings one Sunday each month except the month of the Pledge Drive, and December. We began taking nominations of organizations at the January congregational meeting, and congregation members will vote for their choices at the spring Annual Meeting. Donations will begin with the new fiscal year in July. Each organization must be a local 501C3 organization, and those previously funded are not automatically included again. To complete your nomination we will need, by March 5, name of organization, brief description, website, and note of how you believe it fits with UUFG principles. Please send these to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

March 10 (Sunday PM) through March 16 (Sunday AM)
Hosting Family Promise guests at UUFG. We will host families for evening dinners, overnight, and breakfasts. Please look for the table today to sign up to help by cooking, hosting dinner, or any of a myriad of other tasks!

March 11-12 (Monday-Tuesday)
UU Justice Florida 2019 Legislative Days. UUs from all over Florida will gather in Tallahassee. On March 11 the UU church in Tallahassee offers supper and programs to prepare us, and on Tuesday we will visit our State Legislators to press causes which fit our UU principles. For Program information and to Register by March 1 go to the web page UUJusticefl.org. While on that web page, consider signing up to receive Action Alerts through the UUJF Action Network.

If you are ready to get involved in one of our Social Justice Action Teams, pick up a yellow Social Justice brochure in Phillips Social Hall. to see the possibilities. We especially need volunteers right now in Pineridge neighborhood, working with children or with adults. And looking ahead in case you want to get started reading: we will be doing a Common Read of the book Justice on Earth: People of Faith Working at the Intersections of Race, Class, and the Environment.
