Bridges to a Better World - Intergenerational Read-In

In solidarity with the National African American Read-In, UUCA will launch it's first Intergenerational Read-In focusing on the life of Ruby Bridges, the first African-American child to desegregate an all-white public elementary school in the South. We will use Ruby's life and story as a platform to understand the history, strategies and deeper implications of the fight for social justice in our current day communities and global world.

SIGN UP:  
Commit to Read Ruby Bridges Autobiography with your Family, UUCA Members and Friends. Orders will be taken starting on MLK Sunday in the UUCA Social Hall/Bookstore starting on MLK Sunday and reading will begin February 4th. 

READ & REFLECT: 
Through the month of February, read and reflect on Ruby's story as well as the supplemental resources/self-study questions that are paired with it. Podcasts, interviews, other literature and resources will be provided to enhance the scope and bring a greater depth of understanding so take your time and explore!

DIALOGUE & ENGAGE: 
Sunday, March 4th will bring our Read-In to a close with a special Sunday service honoring Ruby Bridge's and a featured film and discussion during Second Hour. Congregational/Community Leaders working on issues of educational inequity will share their work and plug you into local opportunities to engage!

Community Conversation on Atlanta’s 100% Clean Energy Plan -2

Atlanta City Council has voted to create a 100% #cleanenergy plan! Now the City needs our input! 

These #CommunityConversations, hosted by the City of Atlanta Mayor's Office of Resilience, are a chance learn more about this process and to communicate our needs, priorities, and input to those developing the plan. Food, beverages, and child care will be provided free of charge.

The Sierra Club - Georgia Chapter urges you to attend this event, and stay involved!

Suggestions to the City might include #greenjobs and job training, weatherizing homes to reduce power bills, low-cost options like energy efficiency, heat reduction, and green space, and massively scaling up renewables like solar and wind. 

Below is a link to the existing survey where you can add your input now, and further links with more information on how to get involved.

We hope to see you there!
