Sustainable Saturday Night this Saturday – 9/23

This month our Sustainable Saturday Night will be co-sponsored by 3 new groups — Wisconsin Faith Voices for Justice, Dane Sanctuary Coalition, and First Unitarian Society’s Equity Ministry Team – as well as our usual partners – WNPJ, EPC, ENNA, OM Village, and the James Reeb PJS!

Rabbi Bonnie Margulis and Sergio Gonzalez, two of the Dane Sanctuary Coalitions founders, and perhaps others, will speak to the state of the new sanctuary movement in Dane County. They will help us understand how we can best support this beautiful movement and our neighbors who are at risk for deportation.

The night will conclude with a brief and powerful musical performance by Amelia Sweet Bluebird! Amelia is a Chicago singer songwriter, unique in her strong voice and spiritual songs. She plays guitar and sings at community venues throughout the U.S. She performs social protest, originals, and spirituals, all with universal teachings about nature, emotion, and the human experience. Her first EP will be released in October 2017.
As always, Sustainable Saturdays are on the 4th Saturday of the month.

They are free, family friendly, and welcoming to all. Meal starts at 6 PM. Program starts at 7 PM.
