Join Us for a Reflective & Uplifting Evening with UU the Vote & DRUUMM
In an increasingly complex political landscape, our voices and actions as BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) Unitarian Universalists are more crucial than ever. DRUUMM is thrilled to host an empowering online event in collaboration with UU the Vote, featuring the esteemed Nicole Pressley (she/her), a powerful, prophetic voice and leader within our UU community.
Nicole Pressley, formerly the National Organizer for UU the Vote and now the Field & Programs Director for the UU Side With Love leadership team, will lead us through a series of deep discussions and engaging activities. As we navigate the 2024 election cycle, this event offers a sanctuary for us to express our feelings, harness our faith, and find actionable ways to remain engaged and mobilize our communities to vote.
What to Expect
- Engagement and Exploration: Through interactive activities, we'll explore our collective feelings about the 2024 election and the role our faith plays in such pivotal times.
- Insightful Presentation by Nicole Pressley: Delve into the core of UU the Vote 2024 with insights and updates, exploring how we can contribute to spiritual care, community safety, and political action.
- Breakout Discussions: In smaller groups, we'll discuss how to meet this spiritual moment with tangible actions, reflecting on our experiences in 2023 to identify gaps and needs.
- Collective Reflection and Next Actions: The evening will conclude with a synthesis of our discussions and a collaborative outline of next actions, ensuring we're ready to move forward together.
This event isn't just a gathering; it's a call to action. It's an opportunity for us to unite as BIPOC UUs, to share our stories and wisdom, and to prepare ourselves for the essential work of engaging voters in the 2024 election. With Nicole Pressley's experienced guidance, we'll explore how to deepen our engagement, support each other, and make a tangible impact in our communities and beyond.
Don't miss this chance to be part of a movement of faith, hope, and action. Let's come together to support each other, to learn, and to plan how we will contribute to a future that reflects our values and vision.
Together, we can make a difference. Together, we can vote our values into action.
