Saturday, November 9, 2019, from 9:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Offsite.
Join members of Heritage Church and other UU churches from across the state at the annual assembly of Unitarian Universalist Justice Ohio (UUJO). This is a time to learn what others are doing and be refreshed by new ideas.
The location is the Methodist Theological School in Ohio, located in Delaware, Ohio (outside Columbus). The event begins at 9:30 a.m. with coffee and registration. The program starts at 10:00 a.m., with the keynote speaker, meetings, and workshops running until 4:00 p.m. Lunch is provided.
The keynote speaker is the Rev Dr Jack Sullivan, Executive Direct of the Ohio Council of Churches. An internationally known speaker, social justice advocate, ecumenist, and death penalty abolitionist, Dr. Sullivan is president of the Governing Board of Ohioans to Stop Executions; co-president of the Disciples Justice Action Network; a member of the National Action Network; and a member of the governing bodies of the national men’s ministry, EcuMentors; the Ohio Region of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ); the Ohio Poor People’s Campaign, and Journey of Hope: From Violence to Healing, a national anti-death penalty organization. His anti-death penalty activism stems from his interest in ending cycles of violence, a concern he has known all too well after the 1997 murder of his sister, Jennifer, in Cleveland, Ohio.
More information on the UUJO Annual Assembly, including reservation information, will be provided at a later date. If you have any questions about UUJO, please speak with Rae Jane or Russ Araujo, or email them at:
