This Sunday Jan. 21 at UUCDC - "Democracy Diminished"
It was five years ago this week that the US Supreme Court handed down its ironically-named "Citizens United" decision, opening the floodgates to big money in politics. A core principle of Unitarian Universalism is "use of the democratic process within our congregations and society at large." This Sunday, Rev. Peter and worship associate Josie Cressler will reflect on the impact that this decision has had on our democracy and what role we can play to ensure our voices are heard by those claiming to represent us. Music at both services will be offered by Dick Veleta.
