*Back Pack Program
The UUFL Board is once again asking members to support the Back Pack Program through the end of 2017, including the summer months. Make your checks to UUFL with Backpack on the memo line or put your cash in a labeled envelope (for tax-deduction credit) or in the labeled jar in the Lobby. Our treasurer will provide a monthly check to J. L. Everhart Elementary, the one nearest to us, in the Longview ISD. This program provides non-perishables for children at the poverty level so that they have food to eat over the weekend.
Contact Carol West by email, or write your idea(s) in the binder provided in the lobby.
Bring any non-perishables to put in the food basket in the lobby. Barbara will take our collection to Longview Community Ministries to help feed the poor and hungry of our community.
Asbury House is collecting Bubbles/Wands for this month to assist with some summer fun.Asbury House is a child development center that provides quality childcare for children of parents that are going back to school but are below the poverty line. The mission is to try to break the cycle of poverty by giving children a quality start to their education.

UUA and UUSC
Love Resists is brought to you by the UUA and UUSC In January, UUA and UUSC began an unprecedented level of collaboration to support a growing movement to resist hate speech and xenophobic policy actions at local, state, and national levels, fed by the Trump administration’s dangerous and immoral policy agenda. Since then, thousands of individuals, congregations, and organizations have joined us by adding their names to the “Declaration of Conscience,” kick-starting the first phase in our recently named joint initiative, LOVE RESISTS.
Over the past three months, that effort has continued to grow. Love Resists is now nearly 15,000 strong, and includes individuals and groups from all 50 states, as well as across the globe. You have joined us in this work to resist the increasing criminalization of our communities and to support inclusive policies and strategies that will create safer, more just, welcoming, and sustainable communities.
Many of you have already taken further actions beyond signing the Declaration—participating in Conscience Calls, joining us in webinars to learn more about sanctuary policies and strategies, and sharing resources and information about ongoing work in your communities. We are taking another step forward in this major effort, unveiling a new website which offers a range of information and materials to help you engage in this work. The site is designed to facilitate your learning about strategies and tactics that are having positive impacts as well as share news updates and enable you to more easily report the great work you are doing as you inspire and network with others. We invite you to visit loveresists.org to continue this journey and join the online conversation using #LoveResists on social media!
