Here’s What’s Happening this Week at Friday Action Hour

Join the Friday Action Hour Community!

Since May of 2020, 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! We are also blessed to be joined by Unitarian Universalists, our beloved North Carolina justice partners, and dear friends from outside our state (shout out to our West Virginia fam!).

Schedule of Upcoming Friday Action Hours

Friday, March 15th - State and Federal Funding for our Children. This Friday, our friends at the NC Budget & Tax Center will share their new tool documenting all federal and state-level investments in services and programs for children and youth in North Carolina. This tool, known as a fiscal map, analyzes the state and federal funding from 2019 to 2021 that support all programs and services from the prenatal stage to young adulthood statewide. We'll discuss how this data can be used to advocate for investments for kids, and specifically how it connects to the fights for fair tax policy and for equitably funding early childhood education.

Friday, March 22nd, 2024 - Federal Immigration Legislation. This Friday we will get a briefing from our friends at UUSJ on the Afghan Adjustment Act, the stalled bi-partisan Immigration Bill, and the current politics of immigration in this election year. Then we will take action, calling our US Senators and writing messages to President Biden.
