As Adrienne Maree Brown says, “all organizing is science fiction”. As we organize for social justice individually and as a congregation, we have to be clear about the story we want to tell about our collective future. If we focus only on what we are against, we can be pulled in many directions AND never get to be innovative about how to reach the beloved community. Join guest preacher, Heather Vickery, in imagining a new story together.
Heather Vickery is the Coordinator for Congregational Activism for the UU Service Committee and the UU College of Social Justice – she works with congregations to do their justice work more effectively and faithfully while connecting with other folks in the UU Universe like state action networks and UUA regional staff. She is the Treasurer of the newly incorporated Beyond Bond and Legal Defense Fund and an active member of the Boston Immigration Justice Accompaniment Network also known as just BEYOND. This is also Heather’s last of four years serving as the President of the Board of the First Parish in Malden.
