Sharing the journey of mind and spirit

 Welcome to the Unitarian Universalist Society of Iowa City
 

Interweave

As many of you know, LGBTQA members of our congregation joined the national UU Interweave organization after UUSIC became an "official" Welcoming Congregation in May, 1997.

Over the years, we have sponsored political, educational, and social events. One of our main goals is to stop homophobia, biphobia, and transphobia, and we will continue to work with such organizations as OneIowa, Iowa Pride Network, Eastern Iowa GSA Coalition, and the U of I Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender and Allies Union. However, we feel that now is the time for us to join with the UU Social Justice Committee in our efforts to create social change.

The next Social Justice Committee meeting is Monday, Feb. 13th at 7 PM in the Fireside Room. If you are not already a member of the Social Justice Committee, please consider attending. Letís work together to create social change!
 

Why Interweave?

Supporting our UUSIC commitment to being a Welcoming Congregation, the UUSIC chapter of Interweave includes lesbians, gays, bisexuals, transgender people, and their heterosexual friends and allies. We meet on each month for social action, education, and fun. Check the UUSIC calendar for dates and places, or email us, and put "Interweave" in the "Subject" line.

This group helped guide the congregation through the process of becoming a Welcoming Congregation, and today, we are active participants in Pride Month events each June.

You can learn more about the history of Interweave here. If you would like additional information, or referral to an Interweave associate, please email us.

Another excellent resource is the Unitarian Universalist Association Office of Bisexual, Gay, Lesbian and Transgender Concerns.
