Rev. Benjamin Meyers and the congregation of the Unitarian Universalists of San Mateo (UUSM) invite friends and neighbors in San Mateo to take part in Justice Action Mondays: Flash Advocacy. This Monday/April 10, we’ll write postcards protesting the elimination of the National Endowment for the Arts. We’ll continue making posters for those participating in the local Climate Marches in San Jose and Oakland on Earth Day, April 29. Snacks, supplies and pleasant, like-minded company provided.

Apropos this effort: Lesson Fifteen: Practice Corporeal Politics. Power wants your body softening in your chair and your emotions dissipating on the screen. Get outside. Put your body in unfamiliar places with unfamiliar people. Make new friends and march with them.” Prof. Timothy Snyder, On Tyranny: Twenty Lessons from the Twentieth Century.
The quote and recommended reading suggestion are from me, not UUSM. Justice Action Mondays are, however, a good way to implement this lesson and something that can be implemented by any organization almost anywhere in the world.
Peace! Hope! Joy!
