We are almost to our goal of raising $15,000 to go towards creating a five day, first-of-its-kind, faith-based climate justice activism training for young adults --- At this point, it seems highly likely that we will meet this target!
The UU Young Adults for Climate justice, in partnership with the UU College of Social Justice, will be using these funds to hire top-notch facilitators and community organizers, and to make this training an affordable and transformative experience for all who attend.
THANK YOU to all of the wonderful folks who helped us by spreading the word and donating generously!
This past Monday, UUYACJ-network organizers Aly Tharp and Tim DeChristopher had a great time sitting down together to start planning with the amazing cast of facilitators that have accepted the invitation to lead the GROW Climate Justice workshop in the works.
The 5 day training, focused on strengthening our skills and community of young adult justice activists, promises to be a powerful and transformative learning experience.
Check out the webpage for the workshop to learn more about the program and facilitators, and apply as soon as possible!
Start talking about it and asking around! You might be surprised to find out that your congregation or regional associations have financial resources to help you attend...
You can also help us make this dream come true by sharing this fundraiser link that will go towards subsidizing the costs for participants to attend.
