Eliot Unitarian Chapel in St. Louis MOThe extrajudicial killing of Michael Brown on August 9, 2014 sparked a cry from Ferguson, Missouri that has not relented. Protests have continued daily across the greater St. Louis metro region every day since.

 

As we approach the 1 year anniversary of Mike Brown's death, Unitarian Universalist leadership in St. Louis joins the local Action Council and Movement community in a call for people of faith and conscience to join us here for the weekend of August 7-10, 2015. We are calling for UUs to Show Up for Ferguson.

 
The weekend will kick off Friday evening with a UU rally at one of the local congregations. This rally will include a mandatory orientation for the weekend's events and all who plan to participate must attend. Saturday and Sunday will be filled with marches, worship and opportunities to support the local Movement community. Monday is direct action day.
 
If you are interested in Showing Up in St Louis in August, please make your housing and travel plans now. Note that there will be VERY LIMITED home hospitality available.
