|Ministry Days 2018 - Service Project|
Join us for an evening of radical justice on the evening of Juneteenth. We Unitarian Universalists are theologically wed to disobedience, as we were forged in the fire of the protest-ant reformation, bonded in this nation's struggles to become, and now are a well-enough organized machine to disrupt with our numbers, our intelligence, and our passion. Kansas City has long struggled with segregation, gentrification, and poverty; in conjunction with the Poor People's Campaign's 40 days of civil disobedience, local organizers are planning an evening of beautiful disobedience that will function only with the power of the cloth. Seeing that the presence of clergy is imperative for this to work, please adorn yourself in vestments as you see fit. As in any risky situation, you are invited to participate in a variety of roles; from risk-free witness at the convention center to side-line solidarity, to protection through direct action. Our strategy of disobedience is to surround and protect all that is life-giving, nourishing, beautiful, and moral. This event in organized conjunction with the Kansas Poor People's Campaign under the leadership of local organizers and Rev. Rose Schwab, state-wide chair of the "PPC" and senior minister of Shawnee Mission UU Church on the Kansas side of KC.
