What's Happening in the UCC

File Speak Out Sunday
November 23, 2014
We’re calling all congregations to dedicate November 23rd as Speak Out Sunday – a day for dialogue, teaching, prayer and action around sexual and gender based violence (SGBV) and its prevention. This date coincides with the United Nations “International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women” and the Center for Women’s Global Leadership’s 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence. Speak Out Sunday is the faith community’s way of uniting with and amplifying these global efforts.
File Support Wal-Mart Workers on Black Friday
November 28, 2014
Wal-Mart workers need our support on Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving. Our sisters and brothers who work at Wal-Mart are asking for $15 an hour, full-time work, and other protections. Go to the WalMart action page of JWM partner Interfaith Worker Justice for more info and locations of actions. All workers are children of God and deserve living wages. Stand with Wal-Mart workers in their struggle for fairness and dignity.
File Light for Lima
December 1, 2014 - December 13, 2014
To get a meaningful climate agreement next year in Paris, we need to overcome some major obstacles. This is why the climate talks in Lima this December are so important. In the first week of December around the world, people will be lighting a light at home and holding a vigil of prayer, meditation and reflection for our future. As we enter the second week, we will leave our homes and gather in prayerful vigil outside the homes of our heads of state. We are a #LightForLima.
File The National Gun Violence Prevention Sabbath
December 11, 2014 - December 14, 2014
The National Gun Violence Prevention Sabbath weekend has been a cornerstone in the national conversation about gun violence and, specifically, what people of faith can do in their own communities to prevent it. This year, we're hoping to strengthen our reach while also bolstering the efforts of a key partner, Newtown Action. 
The National Gun Violence Prevention Sabbath weekend has traditionally been observed in March, but is being rescheduled to complement Newtown Action's National Vigil for Gun Violence Victims, December 11-14. Pledge your congregation’s participation now.
