UUJMCA's Turning the Tides ONLINE in 2020!
Program Schedule & Registration Form
The UU Justice Ministry of California is proud to present our eighth Intergenerational Justice Summit, “Turning the Tides” (formerly known as “Walking the Walk”). While we will not be able to meet at Camp de Benneville Pines this year, we WILL be gathering online for a series of workshops, actions, and gatherings to connect, collaborate, and create collective liberation!
Justice-seeking UUs of all ages are invited to register for this FREE* multi-day offering of webinars, workshops, worships, and justice collectives as we continue to adapt our lives for organizing amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Offerings will be spread throughout the week of August 24-29 (Monday thru Saturday), and will be recorded for distribution to registered “attendees.”

This year's Turning the Tides online justice summit will run from August 24, 2020 thru August 30, 2020. Each day of our online program will feature at least two programs/workshops/actions, and will be recorded for later viewing unless otherwise noted in the description. Additional opportunities to gather in virtual community based on cluster/location & justice issue areas will also be provided based on the interest of registered attendees.
