Women’s Perspective Fall 2022 Activities

Aug 30, 2022 | Beacon, News

Your Women’s Perspective Ministry Team has many activities in store for the fall:

September

On Wednesday, September 21, 10:00 am women from East Shore and other local UU congregations will meet (outdoors at ESUC’s campus) to plan our joint strategy to address the Dobbs decision. Please respond to Lori Saccardi ([email protected]) if you can attend.

On Friday, September 23, doors open at 6:30, film starts at 7:00 pm, join us for a screening of “The Janes” in the North Room. This is a story of strong and brave women who provided abortions before Roe. Soups will be available; please bring a dish or dessert to share, and please RSVP to Carol Sinape ([email protected]).

Throughout September, the Northwest Abortion Access Fund (NWAA) has asked for our help in assembling after-care kits for women receiving abortions. We will be posting more specific information on this project soon.

Also in September, help “Bring Out The Vote” in our local critical 8th Congressional District by mailing postcards to inconsistent voters. Contact Margaret Hall ([email protected]) now to participate. Cards, scripts and addresses are provided. Post-carding has been proven to make a difference and so can you!

October

On Saturday, October 22, 9:30 am, jointly with the Indigenous Connections Ministry Team, we are sponsoring a program on “Women As Healers,” as well as continuing a project on dolls representing Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women.

We are still selecting a date for October, but we plan to have a guided walk and tea ceremony at the UW Arboretum Japanese Garden

Additional movies, some exciting sales and exchanges, and walks are planned for upcoming months. Look to this space for more info!
