This is a victory that came about through a collaborative relationship between The UU Legislative Ministry Action Network, the UU Service Committee the Environmental Justice Coalition for Water, Urban Semillas, Food and Water Watch and Alliance for Democracy- all of whom co-sponsored the bill. Now it awaits the gubernatorial signature.

How exciting are the prospects for the beginnings of the Legislative Ministry in Florida! I am inspired by the idea that we could inspire congregations to more focused action in their UU communities- not just pet projects here and there. As Rev. Ramsden told our steering committee, we are going for a big splash, and we can’t go it alone.

On a day when many of us celebrated water communion, I thought it prescient to share this tidbit about water and about UU advocacy efforts making a big splash!
