Side with Love Monthly Meeting
Date(s) - Wednesday, May 8, 2019
First Unitarian Church of Providence
A denomination-wide social justice advocacy and public witness campaign, we are inspired and guided by Unitarian Universalist principles. Side with Love works to use those principles to affirm unconditional, universal love as a foundation and grounding for our actions in the world. We strive to be of service to our communities and advocate for change on local, state, national, and international levels.
Through our Side with Love campaign, formerly known as Standing on the Side of Love, we amplify the voices of the oppressed through:
- online media
- showing up in partnership at justice events in Rhode Island
- lobbying local and national leaders on immigration reform, racial justice, equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer people, religious freedom, and more
- work to make love real in the world.
Events we have participated in over the past year include PRONK!, Transgender Day of Remembrance, Providence Mayor Elorza’s Interfaith Forum, SisterSong, The Woman’s March, March for Our Lies, PRIDE, Guns to Plowshares, Vigil to End Family Separation, monthly Peace Vigil Walks in Providence, and two letter writing campaigns. Through Side with Love and our community connection with the AMOR network, we have also participated in rallies and programs to support immigrant rights.
All people, not just UUs, are invited to join, speak, worship, march, and live on the side of love. To learn more, you are invited to visit the Facebook page Side With Love at First Unitarian, Providence.
