REVEREND MITRA RAHNMEA: Hi. I'm the Reverend Mitra Rahnmea, minister at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Long Beach. I'm am so proud to say that over 50 of our congregants will be making the journey to Phoenix for this year's Justice General Assembly in June, including some of our youth and young adults.
Here in Long Beach, we understand that humanity and the universe shows up for us every single day, and now is the time for us to show up in return, in witness to the grief and hope of humanity and the universe.
EMILY RUBIN: I'm going to GA because I want to be more active in the UU community, and learn about the social issues that are going on today.
CONNIE DAVIS: At our congregation we don't have a lot of youth, and when you go to GA, there's a lot of it. There's a lot of youth going, and they all have the same perspective of, we need to help. And the power of the young people, which is really astounding to see.
EMILY RUBIN: I strive to make this world a free place for everyone, and I think going to GA will help me do that.
REVEREND MITRA RAHNMEA: It is a privilege to serve a congregation that actively works to cross the borders of our hearts, to increase our capacity for love.
We are going to this Justice General Assembly because it's a chance to be with one another, and to be with other Unitarian Universalists of all ages, as we create a new model of justice making that will shape the future of our faith. I hope you will join us.
