Goals for the coming year:
1. Form and support a strong Racial justice team.- This is one of the most important moral issues of our day. Actions in this area are strongly encouraged by the UUA. Almost any other justice issue can be addressed through this lens. Your JAM leaders hope you will help.
2. Strengthen our P.E.A.C.E. team (People Engaged in Active Community Efforts)
Cooperate with at least 2 other churches/organizations in actions which support our focus areas.
Try alternate means of communication such as Meetup, Facebook
