Social Justice Programming -- June 2019

June 9-16 (Sunday — Sunday)
UUFG hosts Family Promise guests.
Homeless families will arrive at the Fellowship on Sunday afternoon, June 9 and “check out” on the following Sunday morning. We have many opportunities for you to get involved in this important program. Pick one that’s right for you!

June 22 (Saturday), Common Room, 7:30-8:30 pm: Live Screening of WARE Lecture from General Assembly.
The 2019 Ware Lecturer is Richard Blanco. Selected by President Obama as the fifth inaugural poet in U.S. history, Richard Blanco is the youngest and the first Latino, immigrant, and gay person to serve in such a role. Dessert will be served and we will have open discussion afterward.

June 23 (Sunday), 11 am: JUNETEENTH — A Service of Commemoration.
On Sunday, June 23rd, at 11 a.m., the service will focus on issues related to enslavement, the joys of emancipation, the identity of some of the barriers still working against the full realization of emancipation, and local steps that are being taken to reverse the effects that those forces have had on African American citizens here in our community. James Lawrence, Director, Gainesville-4-All, will be the principal speaker. Won’t you join us?

June 23 (Sunday), 11 am
Share The Plate with Family Promise of Gainesville.
Through the collaboration of local faith communities, Family Promise of Gainesville provides homeless children and their families with compassionate care that includes case management, education, housing, meals and transportation until they can transition to a home of their own. For our Share the Plate collection we will give all non-designated offerings to Family Promise of Gainesville.
