SUPPORTING A NEW GENERATION OF UU PEACEBUILDERS

The intergenerational seminar, “EQUITY IN ACTION — GENDER IN AN INTERSECTING WORLD” April 11 – 13 in NYC is an opportunity to collaborate with others while learning how to be a global activist. Through workshops, peer and expert-led panel discussions, community building activities, and worship services, participants undergo a transformative process of learning, reflection, and growth on the topic of gender.

With a deep passion for and commitment to international human rights, youth and adults from all over North America will dig deeply into issues; our Miami Valley UU Fellowship team will return to Miami Valley with suggestions for further congregational education and action.

Your donation to this project will fund expenses for our youth and sponsors as they travel to the conference. Our youth have each funded their own registration fees.  Your Faithify donations will go towards travel expenses for this year’s conference. Any extra funds raised this year will help establish a foundation for future years as we seek to make this an annual event for the youth in our congregation.

MVUUF Youth who participate in the UNO Teen Trek will:

  • Gain a deeper appreciation of the UU-UNO’s vital social justice work around the world;
  • Travel with and meet other UU youth who share similar values;
  • Practice leadership skills by engaging the congregation in the UU-UNO mission upon their return.

MVUUF plans to offer the Teen Trek as an annual venue for offering leadership training to youth and young adults.  Your investment in this effort will give young people an opportunity to find their voice and offer their service in the life of our MVUUF congregation, community and wider world.
