Special Screening: “Requiem for the American Dream” with Noam Chomsky

chomskyThursday, September 29th at 3:00 and 7:00 at UUS:E
If social media is any indication, there are many of us looking to voice our opinions regarding the current state of politics. On September 29th, at 3:00pm and again at 7:00pm, you are invited to a viewing of Noam Chomsky’s documentary, “Requiem for the American Dream” followed by a discussion of how it relates to today’s political environment, led by Bill and Carolyn Emerson.  The video will spark discussion about some of the problems we are facing and how we all can get involved to start correcting them. All of us have biases, none of us have definitive answers. Perhaps through listening to one another and collaborating we can come up with some innovative ideas.  Attempting political change as individuals is nearly impossible. No one can do it alone. Only together can we make a difference. All are welcome.

ISSUES Forum with Manchester Legislators – Jan. 12th 1:00 PM

The UUS:E Social Justice / Antiracism Committee is holding an issues forum with the members of Man­chester’s legislative delegation on Sunday, January 12 at 1:00 P.M. in the meeting room. All are welcome!

The idea for holding this forum emerged from a workshop last May conducted at UUS:E by leaders from A Better Way Foundation, who urged us to meet with our delegation to talk about how to address the is­sue of mass incarceration of people of color. On January 12th we will be asking our legislators to support ef­forts to reform our criminal justice system and to reduce the number of non-violent offenders serving long prison sentences.

Of course, there are many other issues that concern UUS:E members and friends: health care, economic justice, aid in dying, climate change, education and much more. If you have a question you would like to
