Indigenous Day: honoring the first peoples of this land

With a growing movement to do away with Columbus Day and make Oct. 12 Indigenous Day, we have the opportunity to correct our very wrong understanding of American history with the coming of Europeans to this continent and to pay attention to and seek to remedy continuing negative situations still affecting the lives of Native Americans. Also New Member ceremony today.

Speaker: Tom Hester
The World as Our Neighbor, Silver City, 1880

In keeping with a UU theme ("Hate has No Home Here") based on our First Principle ("The inherent worth and dignity of every person"), Tom Hester, local historian, will present data from the 1880 census to demonstrate how international Silver City was at its beginning. Family Program today.

Oct 29th
Speaker: Jamie Newton
Dispelling the Illusion of Futility
Although power holders may seek to preserve their dominance and privilege by convincing challengers that resistance is futile, activists should not resign themselves to the self-defeating paralysis of despair. With examples from diverse communities, Jamie Newton will explore social and spiritual foundations of effective movements for peace, justice, equality, and sustainability. Jamie Newton's perspective is informed by his background as a member of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers), as a social psychologist, and as a practitioner of nonviolent action for more than fifty years. Jamie Newton is host of Civil Discourse, a public affairs program of Gila/Mimbres Community Radio (KURU) in Silver City. UUFSC is one of the underwriters..
