Terry Lowman Boardmember of  Unitarian Universalists for a Just Economic Community shares the following message:

A group of Unitarian Universalists (UU) will meet in Evanston, IL the weekend of February 20, 2015 for the Unitarian Universalist Escalating Inequalty/Opportunity for All Conference. This conference is sponsored by UUs for a Just Economic Community (UUJEC). We have great speakers including Chuck Collins, Rev Dr. David Breeden from the Commission on Social Witness and Bertha Lewis, as well as workshops featuring a  broad spectrum of diversity of the presenters to keep things honest (young, old, rich and poor).

Scholarships are available for travel and registration and home hospitality is available. Part of our mission is to be inclusive of people at all stages of their economic lives, so please don’t let money be an obstacle. To register, please click on “sign up” and follow the prompt (http://uujec.com/conferenceInformation).

Our goal is to prepare a large contingent of UUs to go back to their congregation equipped to work on the Congregational Study/Action Issue (CSAI) on Escalating Inequality.  We have added “Opportunity for All” to the name of the conference because culturally you will get very little argument against the fairness that Opportunity for All implies (Escalating Inequality gets some pushback because we don’t seek total equality and because that term implies “Class Warfare”).

Y’all come!
