Youth Valentines to NY Legislature for Love

Posted by T. Resnikoff // March 15th 2012 // Issues and Trends, Social Justice, youth // no comments

On Sunday, Feb 12th, Senior High Youth from the congregation at First UU in Brooklyn, NY led an educational service project with youth from the congregation, as part of the Standing on the Side of Love campaign.

After teaching our children a bit about love, marriage equality, and justice, we made Valentines to send to the NY State representatives who voted to support the Marriage Equality Act, passed by the legislature and signed by the Governor in June, 2011. First UU being a Brooklyn congregation, cards were addressed to Brooklyn representatives, as well as New York’s Federal Senators, the Mayor of New York City, Governor of the State of New York, and the four state-wide Republican officals who made a stand on personal conscious, crossed party lines and stood on the side of love.
