A group of members – currently 20 and growing – at First Parish in Framingham Unitarian Universalist is going to be staying abreast of various issues in our national lives that are at risk in these times. They are creating a Witness Web.
Anyone can go onto the site in Google+ and click on any of the areas to see what is currently happening. It might be a call for action (letter, phone call, petition, march, vigil, education session, legislative news), education and information, or additional resources.
The Witness Web group will also sponsor periodic discussion groups on the issues. Some of the issues will be Islamophobia, immigration, women’s health, climate change, health insurance, racial justice, LBGTQ rights, etc.

This is how one church and one community is working to sustain the hard-won progress made on justice issues, including social class.
