March 26 - "Solidarity for a Shrunken World" - Chelsea Rudman, Worship Leader
This service explores our connection to the workers around the world who make the consumer products we use every day, and the responsibility we have as Unitarian Universalists, under the 2nd and 6th principles, to ensure they are treated fairly.
Chelsea Rudman is the Director of Development and Strategic Partnerships for the Worker Rights Consortium (WRC), an independent labor rights monitoring organization, conducting investigations of working conditions in factories around the globe. Chelsea is a lifelong UU who grew up in our Fellowship, and is currently active in All Souls congregation in Washington, D.C.

Humanist Discussion Group Meeting - Tuesday March 21, 7:00 p.m.
Our next Humanist Discussion Group will be at 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday March 21. The topic will be The philosophy of Steve Bannon and the alt-right. Steve Bannon, currently serving as assistant to President and White House chief strategist in the Trump administration, said:
I'm a Leninist. Lenin wanted to destroy the state, and that's my goal, too. I want to bring everything crashing down and destroy all of today's establishment.
