Congregation Discussion: Police & Justice Reform

Skeptical about calls to defund the police, or curious what that might look like in Winnipeg? Join the Social Justice Team on Sunday, November 8, 3 – 4:30pm to explore a proposal put forth by the Police Accountability Coalition.  We’ll be meeting via Zoom.

You are encouraged to read the following documents ahead of time, and come prepared to share your thoughts.  All points of view are welcome!

Email socialjustice@uuwinnipeg.mb.ca if you have questions or are interested in attending.  Pre-registration is not required, but helps us estimate numbers.

Sunday Service: Leading Change in a Polarized World

Grassroots movements like Black Lives Matter, Defund the Police and Climate Activists are calling for essential, transformative changes, but what is actually needed to make this happen? How do we get there? What would a progressive defunding of the police look like in Winnipeg? How can we possibly get a Green New Deal? We need to look in the mirror and let our values and ethics guide us. Education and courage are needed to hold the important conversations, meaningfully involve more people, be a good ally, share power and lead necessary change.

Join us on October 25, 2020 at this Social Justice Team led service as speaker Molly McCracken of the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives explores these questions and the role of spiritual communities in leading transformative change in a polarized world.
