Boise Unitarian Universalist Fellowship Annual Social Justice Summit 

Where: Boise Unitarian Universalist Fellowship at 6200 N Garrett St, Boise, ID 83714

Time: 9:00am - 3:00pm

 

UVI's is honored to provide the content for this year's BUUF Social Justice Summit. We are equally proud to be working the Boise Unitarian Universalist Fellowship on a revolutionary campaign to RiseUp, Idaho! 

 

It's the kind of organizing that hasn't happened in the past thirty years, but it's the movement we need to bring people together across the spectrum of our diversity, to do the deep listening that is required and to uphold those issue and values that are core to all of us. 

 

We are working for interim change, but we are looking to create systemic change not just for us, but for generations to come. The greatness of this project is that we can do both! There is too much division, organizations competing against one another, too few resources to help us meet our shared goals, too little time or energy to do it all.

 

That's why we are asking you to join us in a broader campaign that wins Medicaid Expansion at the ballot, elects those who have committed to being rise up candidates, plots the state by issue motivators vs. political party, and builds local infrastructure across the state.

Our efforts are not only making a difference,

they are generating state and national attention:
