The UUA Common Read

A Common Read invites participants to read and discuss the same book in a given period of time, building community by giving diverse people a shared experience, shared language, and a basis for deep, meaningful conversations.

The UUA Common Read Selection announced for 2018-19 is: Justice on Earth: People of Faith Working at the Intersections of Race, Class, and Environment, edited by Manish Mishra-Marzetti and Jennifer Nordstrom (Skinner House Books, 2018).

At a time when racial justice, environmental justice, and economic justice are seen as issues competing for time, attention, and resources, Justice on Earth explores the ways in which the three are intertwined. People and communities on the margins are invariably those most affected by climate disaster and environmental toxins. The book invites us to look at our current challenges through a variety of different perspectives, offers tools to equip us for sustained engagement, and proposes multiple pathways for follow-up action.

Rev. Kali will facilitate a discussion session on Justice on Earth on May 2, from 7-9 pm.

A minimum attendance of 4 will be required for the session, but we will try make room for as many who are interested. Copies are available from inSpirit: UU Book and Gift Shop at this link: Justice on Earth.

Rev. Kali will also have a very limited supply of copies for those who wish to borrow a copy.
