Join the Democracy Movement in the Poconos! | Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of the Poconos | Sunday, 04. March 2018

The democracy movement needs YOU! Interested in getting more involved in the fight to #endPAcorruption and restore democracy in Pennsylvania?

Join us for a day of speakers and organizing to learn how to participate in the struggle.

Speakers:
Adam Eichen - Co-author with Francis Moore Lappe of Daring Democracy: Igniting Power, Meaning, and Connection for the America We Want
Rabbi Michael Pollack - Executive Director of MarchOnHarrisburg

Adam will be giving a sermon during the service from 10-11, and then we will reconvene from 11:30 - 2pm.

Additional organizers from the Poor People's Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival and MarchOnHarrisburg will be added. MOH has signed onto William J. Barber, II's Poor People's Campaign, a 6-week national campaign that will engage in nonviolent civil disobedience simultaneously at 25 State Capitol buildings across the country, intended to launch a “moral revival” in our national political debate.

After our speakers, we will hold a citizen lobbying training and contact our State Representatives for a meeting on our two pieces of anti-corruption, pro-democracy legislation. We will also be providing training and organizational infrastructure on how to participate in the campaign and/or risk arrest during the six weeks of action.

Childcare, and a light lunch, will be provided.
