What is Action Advocates?

The Action Advocates is a group of church members who believe it is important to put our UU Principles into action. We encourage UUCR members and friends to make phone calls, write letters, and schedule in-person meetings with their federal and state legislators on topics that relate to our 7 Principles.

THE Second Progressive Potluck Party & Phone Bank
Sunday January 21st at 12:30 at
The Unitarian Universalist Church of Roanoke

Bring a dish to share, your favorite inspirational beverage, and your cell phone. There will be good food and fellowship followed by a brief presentation on citizen lobbying. Then you will be invited to call one or more of your elected State legislators. The Virginia General Assembly is now in session. Virginia State Senators and Delegates are the legislators (not Washington) that have the greatest impact on you, your property, and your community. It is extremely important that they know your thoughts on the decisions they are about to make.

We will provide names and phone numbers. We will also have sample messages available to use. Even if you do not wish to make phone calls, come join us. You can support those who do by writing letters instead. Democracy is hard work. No one said that it couldn’t also be fun!

This event is sponsored by the Action Advocates and the Connections Team of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Roanoke. Contact person: Bob Egbert canyonlake76@gmail.com
