Join us Friday's at 11:00am for Friday Action Hour!
Since May of 2022, North Carolina UUs and friends have gathered on Fridays to take action and experience the joy and power of community. Every Friday at 11:00am we recap the past week and take action on the issues impacting our state and country. And there is always great music to help us feel the justice movement in our bones!
ALL are welcome! Over the past two years, our Friday Action Hour community has grown to include justice partners like Carolina Jews for Justice, The People’s Budget Coalition, The Poor People’s Campaign, the New North Carolina Project, and many more! We are also blessed to be joined by dear friends from outside our state (shout out to our West Virginia fam!) and a mascot, Cameron the Conure bird! Can you spot him in our Zoom photo?
You can join us every Friday at 11:00am via this Zoom link.
And if you can't make it on Fridays, you can still take action at any time - just check out our Weekly action list.
And sign up for our Weekly Friday Action Hour Email that includes a promo of the week's actions, the Zoom link, and the link to our Actions Google Doc.
Special Action Hour Events
UU Justice NC will occasionally host special evening action hour events when we are called to mobilize our state network to powerfully meet the moment. Typically these are done in collaboration with a partner organization around an urgent issue. The events begin with spiritual grounding, celebration of community, and a detailed briefing of the issue followed by a direct action which all participants do within the hour-long event. In 2021 events focused on Duke Energy’s 15-year Plan, Stopping Line 3, the For the People Act, the State budget and holding NC Reps accountable for not voting to certify the election.
A note about our Legislative Advocacy work.
UU Justice NC lives into our mission as a prophetic, but not partisan 501 c3 non-profit through advocacy for specific legislation that creates more equity, and affirms the worth and dignity of all people. (Example – advocating for Medicaid Expansion, fighting voter suppression and anti-transgender bills, etc.). We work to hold elected officials accountable but never endorse political candidates. This is consistent with the work of our larger UU faith, and is within the legal parameters of both our organization and UU congregations.
