    Rally in Front of Wendy’s at General Assembly!

    Rally for Economic Justice at General Assembly! This General Assembly we are protesting outside of Wendy’s! Why? To get better wages and working conditions for the farm workers who have supplied Wendy’s tomatoes. When asked by the Coalition of Immokalee Workers (CIW) to sign onto the Fair Food Program, McDonald’s, Burger King, Taco Bell, and Subway all said yes. Wendy’s responded by moving their business to a new tomato supplier based in Mexico. This new supplier, Bioparques, was prosecuted for slavery in 2013. Workers there have testified that they were trapped in camps without beds, fed on scraps, and beaten when they tried to quit.

    Fiercely UU: Sitting in for Democracy

    Fiercely UU is a blog series where Unitarian Universalist (UU) young adults tell stories about what our faith requires of us and how they follow that call.  To be fiercely UU is to proclaim human worth and interdependence. In an individualist, greed-based, shame and fear fueled white supremacist patriarchy, we say no to isolation and oppression and yes to radical love and covenanted connection. – Ed.  Our Fifth Principle and Sitting in for Democracy by Laura Williamson Last month I sat on the steps of the U.S. Capitol with 300 others singing, chanting, and eventually being arrested, to send a message to Congress: amend the Constitution to get big money out of politics and restore the right…

    YA@GA Election Results

    The Unitarian Universalist Association Office of Youth and Young Adult Ministries is full of gratitude for everyone who participated in the YA@GA elections process.

    Giving Up Trash for Lent

    Living the Wasteless Life by Carter Smith My story actually begins almost a year ago, when one of my Facebook friends posted an article about Lauren Singer, blogger at Trash is For Tossers. She has become well-known in recent years for fitting two years of her trash into a single mason jar. I was astounded because I had never heard of anything like it, even in my growing environmental consciousness within the first year of my college career. Hearing that something known as a “zero waste lifestyle” was possible for people living in industrialized Western societies seemed both outlandish and amazing. From there I spent weeks reading pretty much any literature out there about waste…

    Hallowed Growth in NOLA

    New Orleans Service Trip by Emily Parker On this small lot in the Lower Ninth Ward of New Orleans, organic vegetables grow in rows. Honey bees housed in hives on the lot buzz by, and a bench constructed between cinder blocks doubles as a flower planter. Inside a modest greenhouse, a hodgepodge of reclaimed bathtubs support an aquaculture, growing fish and fertilizing plants symbiotically. David Young, the man behind this and many other community gardens in the Lower Ninth Ward, is taking me and seventeen other Juniata College students on a tour. Spending our spring break in New Orleans for a week of interfaith service and learning, we have just finished our first day of…
