Advisors Needed!

Would you like to make a difference without making a huge time commitment? Come work (and have lots of fun!) with our High School Youth Group! Our youth group is small but mighty. They meet 2x per month on Sunday evenings, and will be doing some community service work this year. We need 2 additional advisors so that we can split the time commitment - ideally, each advisor would commit to one meeting per month.

Please consider accompanying our amazing youth as they plan, prepare, and bring our UU values out into the world!

Celebrate Diversity!

July is Disability Pride Month

The Americans with Disabilities Act was signed on July 26, 1990.

  • The first Disability Pride Day was held in Boston in 1990.
  • The first Disability Pride Parade was held in Chicago in 2004.
  • New York City observed the first official Disability Pride Month in July 2015, the ADA’s twenty-fifth anniversary.

From The Arc website: "Disability is a part of the rich tapestry of human diversity, and something that nearly all of us will experience at some point in our lives. It’s also a significant identity that defines how we experience the world. Yet people with disabilities have been marginalized and misunderstood for generations. All disabilities and their intersecting identities should be acknowledged, valued, and respected, and one way to do that is during Disability Pride Month."

There are many resources to find out more about the history of the ADA. One great resource is the Netflix documentary "Crip Camp: A Disability Revolution". Find out more about the movie here: https://cripcamp.com/
