It all started some 18 months ago when River Road Unitarian Universalist Congregation member Patti Absher with Judith Johnson and Nancy Sorden of the Washington Ethical Society reached out to Capital area UU congregations to organize the festival. Unitarian Universalists for Social Justice was the first to back the initiative with a grant and is a co-sponsor.
