UU Women’s Rights Group:   

UU Social Action Opportunity to Connect – New National secret Face Book group – UU Women’s Rights Group. This is an opportunity initiated by Karen Nichols 

From Karen’s email:

“Earlier last year I started a Women’s Rights Action Group at my congregation.  I am attaching our end of year newsletter “Gazette” to show what we have been up to and what I am hoping on a nationwide level will be the types of things that can be shared on the FB page.

I looked around FB for a national UU Women’s group to connect for ideas, learn about how others are organizing and more importantly as a reminder that there are other like-minded people but I couldn’t find one that fit my idea so after talking to a few folks including our minister, I decided to create one myself.

It was created as a “secret” group to reduce any trolls etc as people can only be added by another already in the group.  If you would like to be added, let me know and just send me your email address that is used on FB and I will have an invitation sent out to you right away.

Once in the group you can directly add any of your UU friends who you know would be interested. If you are not interested but think you know someone who might be, just have them send me their Face Book email address at: kbbingo@hotmail.com and I will send them an invite.
