It is WUUSAN’s objective to make sure the activities of UU congregations and our partner organizations in Wisconsin are known to all UU’s in the state.  This bi-weekly eblast will contain information on events that are happening in the near future.  If you are charged with communicating to your congregation, we invite you to copy any or all articles from this mailing.  If you are charged with putting on a social justice event in your congregation or organization, please write a short blurb and let us know about it.  You
can send your article to admin@wuusan.org.  Please make sure the event occurs after the next mailing date: August 29, 2022
