October 26th is Intersex Awareness Day
Image

October 26th
All Day

Jade Sylvan offers an Intersex Awareness Day Blessing and reminds us of our UU values, that bodily autonomy is a human right. From the UUA collection of resources.

“As Unitarian Universalists, we decry any medical practice that performs unwanted and unnecessary procedures on intersex children and adults. We believe that the body is sacred, and bodily autonomy is a human right. We will continue to work until everyone has access to this right. May all of our intersex siblings feel supported, empowered, and cherished.”

Zoom Meeting

November’s book selection is American Dirt by Jeanine Cummins. You can join the discussion from the comfort of your own home, via Zoom.
American Dirt, a 2020 novel by American author Jeanine Cummins, is about the ordeal of a Mexican woman who had to leave behind her life and escape as an undocumented immigrant to the United States with her son. The book was widely panned by Hispanic reviewers. Come and express your views about this somewhat controversial book.
Our lively discussion will be led by Nancy Holland. For more information and the Zoom link, contact Margery Pope, radkova@sbcglobal.net.
