Registration Open for Justice District Assembly

The Unitarian Universalist congregations in Southern Arizona, the Baja Four in Tucson, Sierra Vista and Amado, invite you to join us for a different kind of district assembly, March 31-April 2, 2017. This assembly begins now, right where you are with Education about migrant and borderland justice in Southern Arizona. Join us in the Sonoran Desert as thirty partner organizations offer interactive immersion experiences designed to connect you to the social, environmental and spiritual facets of immigration justice. Then, gather with over 300 Unitarian Universalists for worship at the border wall as the Transformative capstone of our gathering. Check our list of 18 immersion excursions to see the breadth of possibilities you can choose from. For information about early registration, workshops, housing and a video explaining this new, dynamic format see the website at justiceda2017.weebly.com.
