October 4: We believe that all people should be treated fairly and kindly.
October 18: We believe that we should accept one another and keep on learning together.

Short Film: DIFFERENT
October 25: We believe that each person must be free to search for what is true and right in life.
If something is true for you does it mean is true for everyone else? What do YOU feel is right? Why?? If someone else feels differently how do you feel about YOUR choice? Is it ok? How can we allow others to find their truth as we find ours?
November 8: We believe that all persons should have a vote about the things that concern them.
In this session, we will be unraveling and digging into the 5th principle. Join us as we use current events, storytelling, and games to share our unique perspectives and related experiences. During this session, we will be preparing questions to ask some of our UU members during our “panel talk” in our next session.
November 15: We believe in working for a peaceful, fair, and free world.
During this session, we will be discussing the 6th principle through experiential learning! Join us as we ask a “live” panel some of our prepared questions. We will practice using our voice to speak of what is important to us, as well as gain new perspectives from other’s experiences. This is bound to get us all thinking outside the box!
November 22: We believe in caring for our planet Earth, the home we share with all living things.
Join us as we open up and learn about the 7th principle. We will use storytelling, games, and discussions to dive deeper into what connects all living things here on planet Earth; and the responsibilities that come with being part of a whole.
Nov 29: We believe in building the Beloved Community, free of racism and oppression
In this session, we will be joining with our younger buddies (space k-2) as we learn about the 8th principle. We will share our learnings with the younger buddies and listen to their unique perspectives and findings on this principal as well. Join us as we co-create a project with both groups, based on the experiential learnings and ideas around this principal through games and discussions.
