    Spotlight: UUs of Wellesley College

    Consistency is Key Rosemary Dodd is a student at Wellesley College and was very involved in youth leadership in her Unitarian Universalist(UU) community back home in California. She is part of the UU student group at Wellesley, supported by a UU chaplain, and she can see the difference it makes coming to a school with an active and supported UU group on campus. “I think it helps to keep me balanced and gives me an opportunity to stay connected to my spirituality, especially since being UU has been so key to my identity and focus before Wellesley; it creates some continuity, which so many of my other UU young adult friends have struggled to find.”…

    A Studied Fight Against Oppression

The program started with a 6 month series focused on the various facets of privilege and oppression.

    Hanging On By Their Faith

    UU young adult activist suspends their body to slow arctic oil drilling “This is a personal issue for me because of my faith; I’m actually a Unitarian Universalist seminarian,” begins Elizabeth Mount explaining why they’re willing to dangle from a bridge for an uncertain length of time above the Willamette River in Portland, Oregon.  Elizabeth is part of a group of Greenpeace activists using their bodies to stop an ice-breaking ship called the Fennica from leaving for the Arctic to assist with Shell Oil’s drilling operations there. “I want Shell to know that human lives are more important than profits,” this UU young adult states in their video on the issue.  The activists hope to send a strong…

    They Are Everywhere – You Just Need to Know Where to Look… “I’m moving to a new part of the country. How can I find other UU young adults?” “I just learned about Unitarian Universalism and want to check it out. Where can I find peers?” “I want to get more involved.
