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.
It is time to Repower!
27h August, at James Reeb UU Congregation, 6 p.m. potluck and 7 p.m. presentation
RePower Madison is a campaign to make Madison a national leader in clean energy with fair & affordable bills. Learn about RPM’s plans for the fall and how you can take action. You’ll hear how they plan to push MGE to be a utility of the future as well as the City of Madison’s latest actions. We’ll also look at a proposal from Alliant Energy to increase monthly mandatory fees that will reduce customers’ control over their bills and harm energy efficiency incentives. Seniors, minorities, students, and other customers with low usage will be hit hardest by this proposal.
