Summer Social Justice Chats with UUJAZ and Yes! Magazine
Thursdays, June 1 – August 24 | 11am-12pm | Zoom (Register)

With all that’s going on in social justice in Arizona,

  • how do we push back against what’s happening in our state now,
    • while staying inspired for the kind of world we are trying to create?
  • Let’s build our imaginations,
    • and practice trying on BIG radical ideas for change.
  • Rather than dissecting the practicality of each article,
    • our guiding questions will stretch our capacity to wonder and dream…
      • because the first step to creating real change
        • is the ability to imagine that things could be different than they are now.

Join UUJAZ Co-Director: Partnerships and Programming, Janine Gelsinger

  • each week this summer for a deep and casual space.
  • We will connect about an article each week from Yes! Magazine,
    •  Janine’s favorite source — for thought-provoking and imagination-filled articles on social change.
  • We will ask ourselves how the reading relates to our UU values,
    • and what takeaway we want to incorporate into our own lives.

This group is no-commitment, come as you can, drop-in drop-out style… it is summer after all!
