Are you concerned about our representation in Harrisburg and Washington DC, but don't know what to do about it? Come to our Legislative Advocacy Workshop.

PA State Representative Mary Jo Daley and UUPLAN Director Anita Mentzer will discuss best practices as we learn how to lobby, visit legislators' offices, make calls, and write letters. Come with your questions, experiences, and ideas about being resilient in the next 4 years while acting on our UU principles. Let's be known as the congregation that puts its values into action.

Black History Month Film Series and Discussion: Many Rivers to Cross
This discusses the evolution of the African-American people, as well as the multiplicity of cultural institutions, political strategies, and social perspectives they developed - forging their own history, culture, and society against unimaginable odds.

  • Part 1: Friday, February, 10, 7:30-9:00 p.m. | Into the Fire
    1861 to 1896 | With the breakout of the Civil War the plight of slaves was plunged into chaos, as was the rest of the country. A half million escaped the South. Many fought for and helped the North win. After the war: the struggle to build communities, the quest for citizenship, the desire to hold office—all of this eventually led to the white South’s fear and deadly reaction to the changing South.
  • Part 2: Sunday, February 12, 12:30-2:00 p.m. Lunch served | Making a Way Out of No Way
    1897 to 1940 | This looks at the large migration to the North and West from the South to escape the continued persecution of Jim Crow laws, the Klan, lynchings, and the destruction of black-owned businesses and communities. Several African American pioneers and leaders emerged in this period and forged the way ahead, creating a new black culture.
