Common Ground Street Choir

Emma’s Revolution threw down the gauntlet at their workshop at the General Assembly in 2014. They said we’ve lost the peaceful nonviolent protests of the 60s and 70s. Now, no one seems to know the songs – or sings at protests and marches.  Now it’s the three-word chant, which is confrontational.

They challenged congregations to start Revolutionary Street Choirs to show up at protests to SING the message, and teach the old songs and bring some new ones, too. Singing evokes emotion.  It’s a peaceful, nonviolent way to convey a message.  And it can create magic.

Several of our congregations have picked up the gauntlet and formed the Common Ground Street Choir. They sing out our message at rallys, protests, celebrations, and even in the State Capitol in Austin (for the Legislative Action Day in February, 2015). For details and to join in please visit the Common Ground Street Choir Website:  CGSC

Social Action at General Assembly

Escalating Inequality is the Congregational Study/Action Issue approved last week at General Assembly; it now starts a four-year process before it becomes a Statement of Conscience.

Mark October 18 on your calendar to learn a bit more about it, and the other current CS/AIs (Reproductive Justice and Immigration), as well as the Actions of Immediate Witness also voted in. (Stopping Deportations, Gun Violence Prevention, and the Uganda New Underground Railroad)

Finally, there is money available to help Get Out the Vote! The Fund for UU Social Responsibility is offering up to $500 to UU groups and congregations for non-partisan projects. What would you like to do?
