UU-UNO Envoys and Envoy Teams at UU Church of Birmingham, Birmingham, AL
Unitarian Universalist Church of Birmingham UU-UNO Envoy
Lynda Wilson is the UU-UNO Envoy for the UU Church of Birmingham, Alabama (UUCB). The church achieved Blue Ribbon designation at the 2018 General Assembly. We coordinate UN Sundays each year, and Lynda coordinates a Refugee Interest Group that is open to members from the wider Birmingham community, but reports to the UUCB Justice Committee. Because Birmingham has no Refugee Resettlement program, the Interest Group focuses primarily on developing education and advocacy programs. When a refugee is resettled in the area, the group provides direct support. Lynda was the Adult Dean for the 2018 Spring Seminar that focused on "Just Migration for All." Our 2018 UN Sunday service will focus on the global refugee crisis, and will include a presentation from a refugee family that the Interest Group helped to resettle in 2017.
