For those of you attending the Unitarian Universalist General Assembly in Phoenix this year, make sure to meet up with our Director of Outreach and Technology Rob Nathan! Rob will be attending the GA Wednesday, June 20th through Saturday, June 23rd. If you’d like to set up a time to meet with Rob while he’s there, call him at 503.227.2807 or email him at rob@nwei.org. Rob is excited to hear about what’s going on with your congregation, as well as to tell you about some of the exciting happenings at NWEI right now.

While you’re there, make sure to visit NWEI partner Unitarian Universalist Ministry for Earth’s booth (#209) in the exhibit hall. UUMFE is also facilitating a workshop on Immigration and Environmental Justice:

Immigration & Environmental Justice

UUMFE’s own GA workshop.
Friday, June 22, 9:00-10:15 am at Phoenix Convention Center, 121 AB.

Panelists Rev. Earl W. Koteen, Amy Petré Hill, Lara Helfer, and Linda Herrera will discuss how environmental degradation (polluted air, land, and water; ocean acidification; severe storms and droughts; mass extinctions; melting glaciers) disproportionally impacts disadvantaged communities and contributes to migration and injustice. Find out how your congregation and state advocacy network may work with environmental justice organizations and coalitions addressing these issues.

We hope to see you there!
