Budget Town Hall Mtg – April 7 – Bring your favorite programs to UUCPA this year

April 6th, 2024 by

At this Sunday’s Budget Town Hall, we will all see the anticipated budget for the coming fiscal year. Please join in for that important meeting ~ with bagels and fruit at 11:15 to tide you over (online attendees: use the same link as the Sunday service). Pledges keep coming in, but as I write, we are about $70,000 short on our budget. We are missing a couple of dozen pledges to keep our programs, and the staffing and facilities that make them possible, at the level we have enjoyed this current year. If you have not yet pledged, please do so if you are able to, so the Board decisions can be as careful as possible.

Many thanks, and here’s to seeing you this Sunday, April 7❤️.

Blessings,
Amy

UUCPA welcomes AUTHENTIC SELVES, a traveling photo-text exhibit, Mar 31, Apr 7 & 14

April 6th, 2024 by

The Unitarian Universalist Church of Palo Alto proudly welcomes AUTHENTIC SELVES, a traveling photo-text exhibit from Family Diversity Projects. The exhibit will be open to the public from 11:30 a.m.–2:30 p.m. on three Sundays: March 31, April 7, and April 14, 2024.

Groundbreaking in its depictions of joy and community, AUTHENTIC SELVES celebrates trans and nonbinary people and their families in stunning photographs and their own words.

So often trans and nonbinary people’s stories are told only through the lens of their struggles and challenges, including their political battles for legal rights, but trans and nonbinary people live rich and fulfilling lives full of joy and community too.

Authentic Selves is a sweeping compilation of life stories and portraits of trans and nonbinary people, as well as their partners, parents, children, siblings, and chosen family members.

Admission is FREE. Voluntary donations will support Family Diversity Projects—learn more about Family Diversity Projects here.

We welcome you to visit this joyful exhibition.
