HEADS-UP San Mateo, CA: Justice Action Mondays, Flash Activism
Rev. Ben Meyers and the congregation of the Unitarian Universalists of San Mateo (UUSM) invite area residents to join with them for Justice Action Mondays: Flash Activism. The gatherings run from 5:30 – 6:30 p.m. Postcards, stamps, other supplies, snacks and good conversation with like-minded people are provided.
This Monday, April 3, we will speak up for the planet, writing postcards to protest the executive order that rolls back many environmental programs. We will also start to make posters for our local Climate Marches in San Jose and Oakland on Earth Day, April 29. Come and speak up for the fish and the bees and the air we breathe!

Rule #13 from On Tyranny, Twenty Lessons from the Twentieth Center by Timothy Snyder: “Power wants your body softening in your chair and your emotions dissipating on the screen. Put your body in unfamiliar places with unfamiliar people. Make new friends and march with them.” (A must read. More to come on this. This recommendation comes from me, not UUSM.)
