Need to Get Grounded in UUism & the Climate Strikes?

Get inspired! You can watch this 1-hour video, learning more from UU youth organizers Sophia Geiger, Levi Draheim, and Charlotte Stuart-Tilley! Sophia reminds us, “we need people who don’t think of themselves as a ‘climate activist’ to be climate activists.” Charlotte calls for us to have fortitude in the struggle with something that seems insurmountable.
