Circle ‘Round for Justice, Healing, Courage

Circle ‘Round for Justice, Healing, Courage

Circle ‘Round for Justice, Healing, Courage was the theme for the Unitarian Universalist Association’s General Assembly (GA) 2021. Piaf Azul, Cathy Cramer, Axton Krantz, and Aly Tharp attended the virtual GA this year to circle ‘round in community with UUs from across the country and beyond. During their experience they circled ‘round in care and healing, for liberation and justice, and for love and courage. Join us as they reflect on their experience, offer us a window into our denomination, and invite us to consider the role of healing, courage and justice in our lives.
