If you know any ACA recipients that would like to speak we would be happy to help amplify their story. Please share this with your progressive networks along with family, friends, neighbors, and other constituents. We want our message to be loud and clear!

Since the 2016 election, incidents of hate crimes toward Muslims have increased dramatically according to the Southern Poverty Law Center. President Donald Trump’s controversial Executive Order banning travel to the U.S from several Muslim dominant countries has been met with widespread resistance and was halted temporarily through court challenges. As UU’s, we need to know about the dynamics of Islamophobia and how to be an ally for people from the Islam faith. Members of Northwest UU and the public are invited to a forum on Sunday, February 26 at Northwest UU Church on “Understanding Islamophobia and What It Means to Be an Ally of Muslims’’. Fatina Abdrabboh, attorney and Director of AMAL (American-Arab Muslim Minority & Advocacy League), will present this very timely topic followed by a Q & A period. AMAL, is a new civil rights organization that was launched this month to strengthen the rights of Arabs, Muslims and other minorities. AMAL in Arabic, means “Hope”.

Anthropocene Are we entering a new geologic era? A Working Group of international scientists is deciding whether to declare a new geological epoch -- the Anthropocene -- with the Earth shaped more by mankind than nature. Its members tell the story of the Anthropocene and argue whether it's a tragedy, a comedy, or something more surreal. With archival footage, award-winning stills and interviews, the film proposes a common narrative for mankind but leaves viewers to decide how we should write the ending. Discussion following led by John Zawiskie, Geologist/Paleontologist, Cranbrook Institute of Science. Admission: FREE

John Sims, a Detroit native is an interdisciplinary conceptual artist, creating multimedia projects spanning the areas of mathematics, art, text, performance and political-media activism. His main projects are informed by the vocabulary of mathematical structure, the politics of sacred symbols and poetic reflections. He is currently completing Recoloration Proclamation, a 15-year multi-media project which explores the complexity of identity, cultural appropriation and visual terrorism in the context of Confederate iconography and African-American culture. This project features recolored Confederate flags, installations, a play, a documentary film and a music project, leading to him organizing a 15 state simultaneous burying of the Confederate flag across the American south in 2015 in honor of the 150th anniversary of the end of the civil war. As the former coordinator of mathematics at Ringling College Art and Design in Sarasota, Florida, he designed a visual mathematics curriculum for artists and visual thinkers. Sims has lectured and exhibited nationally and internationally including Hungary, Spain, Slovenia, Israel and Argentina. He has worked with Sol LeWitt, Karen Finley, Dread Scott, DJ Spooky and Amiri Baraka. His work has been featured in Art in America, Sculpture, BOMB magazine, Hyperalleric, Guernica, FiberArts, NYArts, Science News, Nature, The Guardian, TheRoot, TheGrio, CNN, the New York Times and the Washington Post.

presented by Mike Wiley Productions Tue. Mar. 14 & Wed. Mar. 15, 9:30am & 11am - runtime: 50 min. Thu. Mar. 16, 7pm – runtime: 90 min In 1955 a 14-year-old black Chicago youth traveled to the Mississippi Delta with country kinfolk and southern cooking on his mind. He walked off the train into a world he could never understand – a world of thick color lines, of hard-held class systems and unspeakable taboos. Young Emmett crossed that line and stepped into his gruesome fate by whistling at a white woman. Written and performed by Mike Wiley, this riveting one-actor play chronicles the murder, trial and unbelievable confession of the men accused of Till’s lynching. This project is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts. Presented in Stage II. Grades: 8 and up. Tickets: All Seats $15 ($5 Student).

"... makes for a dazzling spectacle, as was evident when the Shaolin Warriors packed the Hummingbird Centre for two shows!" -The Toronto Star The Shaolin Warriors is a wildly popular theatrical experience performed by masters of Kung Fu. In this fully choreographed stage production, Shaolin Warriors brings the remarkable skill, stunning artistry and death-defying martial-arts prowess of more than 20 Kung Fu masters to the stage. Beginning at a very young age the Kung Fu masters are trained in mental and physical disciplines, perfecting the art of hand-to-hand and weapons combat, which allows them to perform unbelievable feats of athleticism that only seem possible in the movies. The production features many forms of Shaolin Kung Fu as well as a look at the daily life of the warriors and their Zen philosophy.

This march is intended to be a peaceful protest against the censorship that has been put in place by President Trump. Science is the basis of all life. From clean water and air to food and safety. We want better medicine and a better understanding of our bodies and our health!! On May 10th, 1933 the Nazis raided libraries and bookstores across Germany and proceeded to burn books they did not approve of. The intellectual censorship implemented by the new Trump administration echoes much the same. Taking control of what we, the people, can and can not read in relation to the newly developed scientific discoveries that are being made. If you are waiting for Science to develop a new chemo drug for child..or anything similar this is a horrifying idea. We MUST stand together to show our president (yes he is our president) and the world that we know what is happening and we want it to STOP NOW!! In the words of a powerful MLK "Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter." So, gather your friends, family, co-workers and anyone else you can find and lets stand up for what is right!!! This a coordinated Sister march to March for Science DC Check the following web site for location and other updates as the event gets closer: https://www.facebook.com/events/957938401004454/
