Rapid Response Network Training REGISTRATION

Announcement—Unitarian Universalist Rapid Response Network Training and Kick-Off!

When: Saturday, April 19, 10:00AM-1:00PM

Where: Emerson Unitarian Church 1900 Bering Dr. Houston TX 77057

Calling all UUs in the greater Houston area to join us for this introduction to our exciting new program. Here are our “Talking Points” for why we have formed the UU Rapid Response Network:

· As Unitarian Universalists, we have a demonstrated long history of over 40 years of acceptance and inclusion in areas that are often controversial in religious congregations—these areas include GLBT inclusion, Women’s health and reproductive rights, and Interfaith cooperation and support.

· Too often the voices of the religiously conservative are the only religious voices heard on these issues

· When instances of intolerance or discrimination occur in the Greater Houston area around these issues, we want a clear religiously progressive response so that people better understand the breadth of religious perspectives on complex issues.

The network will call “actions” 3-4 times a year so that we can gather around a particular incident or issue and get our voices heard! This training will introduce participants to the process.
