Towards a More Perfect Union with Rev. Ashley Horan
About the Message: As Unitarian Universalist congregations, we covenant to affirm and promote “the right of conscience and the use of the democratic process in our congregations, and in society at large.” How did democracy come to be central to our faith, and how are we called to move and act now, as democracy comes under increasing threat in the US and around the world?
About the Speaker: Rev. Ashley Horan is the Organizing Strategy Director at the Unitarian Universalist Association, where she leads the team that holds all of the UUA’s outward facing justice ministries under the banner of Side With Love. Through Side With Love’s campaigns (UU the Vote, Create Climate Justice, Love Resists, and UPLIFT – LGBTQ, Gender, & Reproductive Justice Ministries), Ashley and her team mobilize UU individuals and congregations to deepen in their faith, grow their skills, and take courageous and impactful action for justice.
