          - Postcard campaign (cards ordered)
          - Phone banking
          - Registering voters at grocery stores and other locations in August and September
          - Offering rides to the polls or voting centers in the 45 days prior to the election.

The sessions will address BlackLivesMatter, Ending Police Brutality against Blacks, and Ending White Supremacy. All are welcome. We are facilitating these as Deep Listening sessions at first, like our Fellowship Circles. That is, we all listen respectfully with no comments or suggestions while each of us speaks in the safe, loving place that we create together in our Zoom sessions. In Community, Robin van Tine, Chair Social Justice Committee. Please join us via Zoom at bit.ly/2zGXGdg or for more information, contact socialjustice@uufp.org.
