Our covenant calls us to seek the truth in love. Few in the Concord community embody this aspiration for social justice as consistently and eloquently (and forcefully) as Arnie Alpert. For almost 40 years Arnie led the American Friends Service Committee of NH creating our state’s most potent and visible force for progressive social change. He has been an inspiration to countless UUs and an ally on most of the causes we have pursued over the years. Come hear Arnie reflect on the key issues he championed, the lessons he learned, and the spiritual grounding that made his long-term campaigns sustainable. Barbara Keshen will introduce Arnie with stories of her own.
And the Youth Group will offer a first preview of their trip to Arizona and what they learned about the issues of immigration, border crossings, and detention.
