We envision a vibrant regional community of Unitarian Universalists working together to create a peaceful, just, and sustainable world – for ourselves and for the generations to follow.
Our mission is to mobilize and amplify the voice of Unitarian Universalists in the National Capital Region (NCR) as we seek to change the world through acts of love and justice.
This event is free to attend, but your registration will help us to plan.
A free will offering for UUSJ will be taken at the event.
