Social Justice/Public Witness – Calendar Week of 11/6/23

To celebrate Trans Sunday

To celebrate Trans Sunday, a big shout-out to D. Steele who pulled off the greatest feat of organizational behavior in history IMHO: as president of First UU, he ran a congregational meeting on a cellphone from his car while in the midst of a move!

Next Sunday

Don’t forget next Sunday is electronics recycling day; start going through closets and cabinets to find that stuff that is junk to us, treasure to others…

Then at 3

Join SURJ Cincinnati for a virtual event: Smoke Signals, a 1998 coming-of-age film directed by Chris Eyre based on Sherman Alexie’s short story The Lone Ranger and Tonto Fistfight in Heaven (1993). The film won several awards and accolades, and was well received at numerous film festivals. While not the first film created by Native filmmakers, Smoke Signals is recognized as being the first feature-length film written, directed, and produced by Native Americans to reach a wide audience both in the US and abroad. This film is also notable for its cast of Native American actors and actresses, and was filmed on the Coeur d’Alene Indian Reservation in Idaho. Register here
