Born on Third Base: Engaging Wealth & Power to Reverse Inequality

With the heart of an agitator and the soul of a storyteller, inequality expert Chuck Collins upends our assumptions about America’s deep wealth divide—one that, for the first time in recent history, locks the nation’s youth into a future defined by their class and wealth at birth; limits our ability to address crises like climate change; and creates a world that no one, not even the rich, will ultimately want to live in.  In Born on Third Base, Collins busts the myths that define our views of rich and poor, and offers bold new solutions for bridging the economic divide and re-engaging the wealthy in rebuilding communities for a resilient future.

UU Climate Advocacy Day

UU Climate Advocacy Day

We’ll meet at the State House in a conference room 519.  We’ll meet, briefly go over the bills and the plan and then send a team of volunteers to each floor on the State House.  All the materials you’ll need will be provided – we just need you!

The Plan: there will be 8 teams (minimum, 2 people per team).  Each team will be assigned a floor in the State House.  The teams will drop off packets of information and have short conversations about why they are there.  All materials will be provided to you.  Just wear your yellow, Side with Love, shirt and show up!  You can learn more about the legislation here

Children & Youth Invitation - Please send us youth art for this action - here’s what you need to know:

Please use 8 1/2 x 11 paper

  • Think of it as a rally sign - include a drawing and a statement about why legislators need to take bold action to fight climate change and protect our future

  • Please ask the youth to include their first name and age

  • It could also be a plea to legislators to take action now. The drawing does not have to be addressed to any one legislator. They will be attached randomly to the packets we plan to drop off.

  • Any age is welcome - children and youth

  • Art can be sent to: UU Mass Action, 40 Mechanic St., Suite 306, Marlborough, MA 01752 – or – if you have a lot of pictures, we will do our best to come pick them up. Contact Laura Wagner lwagner@uumassaction.org

Rowe Center: Lappé & Eichen

France Moore Lappé and Adam Eichen: Daring Democracy - Ignighting Power, Meaning, and Connection for the America we Want

Frances and Adam invite you to turn your fear into power as you work with others who share your passion for finding solutions to our current crises.

 “It’s not the magnitude of a challenge that crushes the human spirit. It’s feeling powerless that does you in. Today, Americans face three intertwining crises: that of the economic system, the political system, and the environment. In this powerful workshop, Frances and Adam will share little-known stories to help you explore how people from all walks of life are contributing to the rising democracy movement. State by state, citizens are working to reverse voter suppression, weaken the influence of big money in politics, and abolish partisan gerrymandering.
