Happy New Year! 

Here are regional and statewide social justice events involving UUs in January.

If you have events you would like us to post in coming months, please email them to info@uujusticefl.org.

Also, if you have skills and talents you would like to bring to our statewide effort, including possibly serving on our board, please let us know.

REGIONAL

Heads up to folks in various state legislative districts:  Targeted Action Alert e-blasts will be sent starting January 2 with descriptions of bills supported by UUJF, talking points and contact information for your Representatives.  UUs who come to Tallahassee Jan. 22 can't press our legislators to pass a bill unless it is advancing through the committee process!

Jacksonville

  • January 23 - Members of the UU Church of Jacksonville and Buckman Bridge UU Church are participating in an ICARE mini-action to hold the sheriff accountable for increasing the budget for the Jacksonville Re-Entry Center.  This center is a national model in serving ex-offenders. It provides wrap-around services to ex-offenders including clothing, I.D.s, food, mental health counseling and other necessary services.  Only 1 in 5 of their clients reoffend. The center saved the city 4.5 million dollars last year.
