New Action Council Endorsements

This past month the Action Council has made the following two endorsements:

Speak-Pray-Act to End Gun Violence event:  June 5, 3:00-4:15 p.m., Lytton Plaza, Palo Alto

This event is being hosted by Multifaith Voices for Peace and Justice with co-sponsorship from several groups, including the UUCPA Action Council.  It is being held in conjunction with this weekend’s “Wear Orange” events and Peninsula Moms Demand Action.  The centerpiece of this event will be a silent witness led by the Palo Alto Friends Meeting, with a few speakers and prayers before and after the witness. 

FxSMC, an organization working to obtain citizen oversight of the San Mateo County Sheriff

The Action Council recently endorsed this effort and is now listed on the FxSMC website’s endorsement page.  Elsa Schafer, who brought this request to the Action Council, is working with the ARE Committee to plan a class on civilian oversight of law enforcement in the coming month, to help educate us on why this effort is important and how it can make a difference in San Mateo County.

NOTE:  You can see the history of all endorsements made by the Action Council and the congregation in recent years on the UUCPA Endorsements page under the Justice section of our UUCPA website.
