Opportunities to Act, Learn & Give #BlackLivesMatter

Are you feeling overwhelmed or uncertain about what to do? Below are specific suggestions provided by the interim ministry team and staff.

Act

  • NEWRequest an absentee ballot to reduce crowding at polling locations. Sign up to be an election judge. Students 16 and 17 years-old can even be election judge trainees. The more staff available, the more polling places will be open.
  • Conduct an audit of businesses you regularly frequent; replace at least one-quarter with those that are owned by people who identify as black, indigenous or people of color.
  • June 20, 9 AM & 5 PM: Attend the digital justice gathering of the Poor People’s Campaign Mass Assembly & National Moral March on Washington
  • Turnout for UU the Vote to fight systemic racism in the justice system, in the streets, and at the ballot box. Connect locally through MUUSJA (Minnesota UU Social Justice Alliance) by emailing Karen Wills at director@muusja.org.
