The State of LGBTQIA+ Activism in the Midwest
with Cody Severson
It's been a challenging time for many marginalized people, a time to inspire both fear and activism. The changes that LBGTQ+ people have won are threatened and offset by the culture of hatred that has flared in recent years. Cody Severson returns to talk about the status and climate of activism for LGBTQ+ people in our area as we head into a new year. Cody received a Bachelor of Social Work in 2020 from MSUM and is applying for his Social Work licensure. He is in a Master of Public Health program out of New Orleans and works with Community Uplift Program and Summit Guidance in Moorhead to help individuals with mental health or substance abuse issues stabilize their lives.
ONLINE - November 19-26, 2020
Hosted by the Unitarian Universalist Association, UU Ministry for Earth, UUSC, & many partners. Rev. Karen Van Fossan is on the planning committee and will be one of the speakers on Sunday afternoon.
In 2016, Unitarian Universalists voted to pay special attention to learning our history and rethinking Thanksgiving in the year 2020, in observance of the 400th anniversary of the Pilgrims landing in Plymouth.
Now is the perfect time to gather and think together, and to celebrate differently, given that our usual travels and traditions for Thanksgiving holidays are ostensibly canceled by a global pandemic. Please sign up, and help spread the word about the fantastic programs and community documentary film screenings being offered for the Harvest the Power Justice Convergence & Teach-In.

"Love is the spirit of this church, and service its law.
This is our great covenant: To dwell together in peace,
To seek the truth in love, And to help one another."
