Renewed Call to Collective Action for Peace, Justice, and the Environment

November 18 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

No War, No Warming: Transitioning an Economy of War to an Economy of Peace

A Renewed Call to Collective Action for Peace, Justice, and the Environment

The Rev. Shawna Foster – Foothills’ guest minister for Sunday 11/18 – will be leading a conversation on the overlapping concerns of militarism, climate change and poverty, grounded in her military experience and personal history, as well as her role on the Steering Committee for the Poor People’s Campaign and as a member of About Face: Veterans Against War. This event is co-sponsored by the Foothills Unitarian Church, Partners for Peace, and Veterans for Peace, Dan Lyons Chapter 178, and is open to the public. We will be discussing ways for the Poor People’s Campaign to emerge in Northern Colorado.

Before the workshop, all are welcome to join us for one of the 3 services Rev. Foster will lead in the morning (8:30, 10 or 11:30) – the service will be titled “Do We Get What We Deserve?” exploring the forces that seek to divide us and shift blame to the vulnerable and marginalized.

Rev. Foster serves as the minister of Two Rivers Unitarian Universalist in
Carbondale, CO. She is a member of About Face: Veterans Against War and
is on the National Steering Committee of the Poor People’s Campaign. Inspired by Dr. King’s warning against militarism and her own military experience, she advocates for an end to the military industrial complex and a transition from a US economy of war to an economy of peace.
