Housing and Homelessness Take Center Stage this Weekend
For years, the Nashua Area Interfaith Housing Justice work group and GSOP have been working toward more equitable housing outcomes for our region. The work has included participation in the city's Master Planning process, advocacy for appropriate uses of city properties (such as the Nimco plant and the Elm Street Middle School), and supporting local ordinances that ensure greater housing fairness, such as the Housing Trust Fund and a mandatory Inclusionary Zoning ordinance.
This weekend, clergy across the area will be preaching about housing justice as a preface to the Housing Justice Forum that will take place on October 2 (see below). Pastor Kristy will preach here from the Gospel of Mark, Pastor Allison will preach on the heritage of inherited wealth at the Unitarian Universalist Church, and Rabbi Jon will preach about permanent homes in relation to their celebration of Sukkot. Pastors from the Episcopal and Presbyterian churches, as well as others will also join the effort. We hope that you will bring open hearts and minds to church this week. And please come to the Housing Justice Forum on Monday.
Greater Nashua Interfaith Housing Justice & the Granite State Organizing Project present a Housing Forum with Candidates for the 2023 Nashua City Elections
Monday, October 2, at 7:30pm At the Unitarian Universalist Church of Nashua, 58 Lowell Street
We invite all candidates for Mayor and the Board of Alderman to join local faith leaders and community members for an evening of conversation about housing in Nashua. Members of the community will share stories and ask questions of the candidates.
This event will be open to the public. All are welcome to attend and hear about our candidates' positions on housing in Nashua.
Parking is available off of Grove Street and Lemon Street, as well as
across the street in the Margarita's/BAE parking lot.
IF YOU CAN HELP PUT OUT LAWN SIGNS (and remember where you put them so we can get them after the fair), please let the Office know.
We Need You!
Can you help out in the Nursery on Sunday's during Church School and Worship? We Need You! Some volunteers have already stepped up, however, we need more. Many of the current volunteers already have many "jobs" in the congregation and we'd like to get some relief.
Please contact the Church Office if you can volunteer and make a difference in the lives of our littlest disciples.
