Please read the attached memo for more information and feel free to contact me with questions. Shannon Williams Social Justice Coordinator First Unitarian Society of Minneapolis sjc [at] firstunitarian.org (612) 377-6608 x104 www.firstunitarian.org <http://www.firstunitarian.org/> Office Hours: Sundays 9:30 - 12:30, Mondays and Wednesdays 10 - 4 To: FUS Climate Change Activists From: Shannon Williams, Social Justice Coordinator Date: March 5, 2014 Subject: Distinction between FUS climate change action team and MUUSJA working group Thank you for your interest and involvement on climate change! The purpose of this memo is to inform you of expanding avenues for involvement with this issue at FUS. MUUSJA Working Group The working group that has been meeting to this point is evolving to solely become a working group of the Minnesota UU Social Justice Alliance (MUUSJA). We are very proud that our members Nancy Miller, Marcy Leussler, and Mary Ann Lundquist have taken the leadership of that group. The purpose of the MUUSJA working group is to advance the work that is currently being done on the PolyMet mine, Sherco power plant, tar sands pipeline, advocacy opportunities, and the "green footprint" initiatives and to coordinate this work with other Minnesota UU congregations. If you have participated in these meetings up until this point, you are welcome to continue to do so. This MUUSJA working group will continue to focus on issues on a local, state, and national level. FUS Action Team Because of the external focus of the MUUSJA working group and its coordination with other congregations, it is not an appropriate group through which to work on FUS-specific projects. Therefore, an FUS climate change action team is forming that will work on projects and initiatives brought forward by members of our congregation that are not on the MUUSJA working group agenda; for example, divestment of financial resources, moving towards reusable coffee cups during social hour, educational events specific to an FUS audience, etc. The possibilities and projects are up to the members of the group! Moving Forward You are invited to participate in the FUS action team, the MUUJSA working group, or both. However, the two groups are independent of each other and will have separate mailing lists, meetings, etc. To participate in the MUUSJA working group, please contact Marcy Leussler at mleussler [at] hotmail.com To participate in the FUS action team, please contact Shannon Williams at sjc [at] firstunitarian.org. You are invited to contact Shannon, Marcy, Mary Ann, and Nancy with any questions!
