We are officially kicking off Freedom to Marry Week, February 8th through 14th! “7 Conversations in 7 Days,”
sponsored by Freedom to Marry, focuses on the reality that having a conversation with another individual, with your faith community, with your legislator, helps effectively promote marriage equality in your community and nationwide.
From February 8th through 14th, the UUA will celebrate Freedom to Marry Week by posting stories and essays written by prominent Unitarian Universalist ministers and marriage equality activists. If you haven’t already, we invite you to visit the UUA’s Action of the Month website and pledge to take action, including lobbying your elected representatives to promote BGLT equality.
There are so many ways for you to be involved in this event! Visit the Freedom to Marry
website for videos about marriage equality
, conversation starters
, and ideas on how you can make a difference. Start conversations about marriage equality at home or at church, write about marriage equality in your own blog or post your own short video on youtube. Donate your facebook status for the day or week to marriage equality, and invite your friends on facebook
to participate in Freedom to Marry Week.
“Standing on the Side of Love,” a video produced by the Unitarian Universalist Association, makes clear that we as people of faith support marriage equality. This video uses images, gathered from Unitarian Universalists across North America who have advocated for marriage equality, been joined in equal marriage, and/or had their marriage officated by Unitarian Universalist clergy.
Check out the video below and please share it with others! The conversations we start this week can create a spiral of influence — encouraging everyone who is touched to stand on the side of love.
