MVUC youth and adults will join thier peers from all over North America in New York City for the UUA’s United Nations Office’s annual three-day interfaith seminar on issues with global impact.
This year’s seminar, aimed at interfaith action to disarm our planet, will engage with issues such as:
- Reducing gun violence and the proliferation of small arms;
- Nuclear disarmament and the abolition of other weapons of mass destruction;
- Use of unmanned drones;
- Strengthening global peace and security; and,
- Racial implications and consequences of armed violence.
Programming will be interactive, encouraging participants to reflect on how the topics addressed affect them in their lives, their spirituality, and how they are called to respond. Moving from ideas to concrete action, participants will learn tools and skills to help them with future collaboration and activism. Each person will participate in an intergenerational Collaboration Group.
Please support upcoming fundraisers which are aimed at reducing the financial burden of participants.
