Wednesday, June 5th, 7:00pm – 9:00pm – Proclaiming our Faith in RJ: Mobilizing the DC Faith Community for Reproductive Justice
Despite being the nation’s capital and our long stretch of economic growth, Washington, DC has some of the worst statistics of any major city related to reproductive justice. Far too many women of color, children, and youth aren’t getting the support and resources they need. Join the All Souls Reproductive Justice Initiative, Planned Parenthood of Metropolitan Washington, The DC Abortion Fund, the Latin American Youth Center, and a panel of local advocates to learn about reproductive justice issues in DC including child care, maternal health, sex education, and access to abortion and discuss what we can do as activists and faith communities to make a difference. This event is the first step in our effort to build a DC network of faith-based activists for reproductive justice. All are welcome and refreshments will be provided! RSVP by visiting: http://bit.ly/DCforRJ. Location: All Souls Church Unitarian 1500 Harvard St. NW. Questions? Contact Danielle Garrett at email@example.com. Learn more about the All Souls Reproductive Justice Initiative here.

Invitation to join the Young Souls POC Caucus
The YS POC Caucus was founded early in 2018, in recognition of the need for a Young Soul POC space. They are currently opening the group to new YS POC members! The caucus is a chance for people of color in our community to gather for fun activities (dinner parties, game nights, book circles etc.) or more serious conversations (discussions on making All Souls an inclusive and affirming space etc.). If you are interested in joining, fill out this form and a member of the caucus will reach out to you. Please feel free to email us (email@example.com) or Alice Newberry (firstname.lastname@example.org), a founding member of the caucus and former YS Social Justice Chair, if you have any questions!

Seeking ushers for Sunday services
Ushers welcome congregants and visitors, hand out the orders of service, and help everything run smoothly and safely. The commitment is only one service each month, so it’s a great way to get involved. Contact Mark Matthews at (firstname.lastname@example.org) to learn more or sign up.
