Most of us are actively engaged with organizations and groups beyond UUFM that share Unitarian Universalist principles. As we learn of them, activities hosted or sponsored by other groups (that are not linked with a political party or candidate) will be shared here. Do you know of something that should be listed here? Email activities(at)uumontgomery.org. Also, watch our Facebook Group for social updates.
Montgomery Hub of Faith in Action Alabama meets on the third Thursday of each month at 6 p.m.

Grannies Respond/Abuelas Responden Art Auction, July 10-17
The online Art Auction kicks off Sunday, July 10, at 10 a.m., and will feature paintings, engravings and photographs by noteworthy International Mexican artists and private art collectors. Proceeds from the auction will help families seeking asylum at the southern border by offering financial assistance to those who provide safe shelters, food, medical care and safe travels for the travelers. For many of those people fleeing violence, war, unemployment, poverty, and unlivable conditions, the migration journey is the only option and is extremely dangerous. Since the COVID-19 pandemic, the Title 42 policy has left thousands of asylum seekers stranded at the border. Take a look at the awesome catalog, which you can download here. Share information about this auction widely. We hope you will join us in helping our neighbors who are fleeing violence and poverty.
