REVOLUTIONARY LOVE: Toward A More Perfect Union

For the last 13 years, Middle Collegiate Church in New York City has been hosting a phenomenal conference dedicated to multifaith, multiracial justice organizing. More than half of the participants are usually UUs, who come back inspired for the work in their congregations and communities. The 2020 conference theme is Toward a More Perfect Union, and it’ll be at All Souls Church in DC this April 24-26. With inspiring movement-builders like Ruby Sales, Valarie Kaur, angel Kyodo Williams, Brian McLaren, Linda Sarsour, and William Barber, we will gather to learn, strategize, and share best practices for taking love and justice out into the streets in this critical year. There is a significantly discounted registration rate of $239 for local UUs ($160 off) that expires February 14. Visit http://revolutionaryloveconference.com and click the “Enter Promotional Code” link from the page where you select number of tickets. If you have questions about the conference, contact Rev. Rob Keithan, Minister for Social Justice at All Souls, rkeithan@allsouls.ws.
