World Beyond War

Led By:
Katie Quinn
With Worship Associate
Gary Ezzell
None of us have lived in a world without war. The First World War was deemed to be the war to end all wars, however, the last century has brought about a massive advancement in technological and chemical warfare. War consumes our money and resources, and has extreme effects on our environment and health. Most significantly, it costs lives, mostly civilian lives. So what would a world without war look like? What are alternative solutions to conflict? How can we learn from the social movements that have occurred, and how do our UU values reflect this kind of global system?

Help Us with a Monthly Food & Supply Drive for our Navajo Nation Community
A couple weeks ago a pick up truck full of supplies were delivered to the extended family and community of a UUCP member who live on the Navajo reservation. A wonderful team of folks came together to donate funds, and store it all to make this happen - many thanks to all of you! These supplies are very much appreciated by family members who are caring for relatives recuperating from COVID in a wide spread area where grocery and medical items are time consuming and often difficult to obtain. We anticipate doing another supply collection in early August. If you are able to help with that and are not already on the team list, Please use this form to let us know if/how you would be willing to be involved

Civic Engagement Announcements
The Invest in Ed initiative is headed for the ballot in November due to the heroic work of many volunteers who managed to gather sufficient signatures despite the pandemic. If it passes, badly-needed funds will be put into public education, money that the AZ Legislature has been unwilling to allocate. 

The summary of Invest in Ed that the legislature is proposing to have printed on the ballot grossly misrepresents the initiative to discourage voters from supporting it. It contains two statements that are FALSE: 1) It states that the Invest in Ed measure will hurt small businesses, and 2) It states that the measure will result in a 77% tax increase. Again, neither of these is true

Get the facts about Invest in Ed here so you are informed and can spread the word to counteract the smear campaign that is planned by those who oppose public education.
