7:00 PM - 9:00 PM Allyship In Action Covenant Group with McGennis Williams and Alex Ziehm - Parlor (Room 13/15)

We are excited to be opening up registration for our three Allyship in Action (AIA) covenant groups which will start in January. These groups are only available to people who have taken the Allyship Workshop, and there are a limited number of spaces available since each of the groups will be capped at ten people.

Service Never Sleeps (SNS) developed this AIA group model to facilitate a broader and deeper dive into Allyship. Joining an AIA group will provide you with the opportunity to proactively exercise Allyship in a structured group setting of accountability and support. UUCA will be offering three AIA groups which will be focused on using Allyship to dismantle white supremacy. The AIA groups will be led by UUCA members who have been trained by SNS to lead AIA groups. The AIA groups will last for six months, and are expected to engage at least monthly. Together, you and your AIA group will grow in your ongoing Allyship journeys, and drive effective action towards anti-racism. In addition to the monthly AIA group meetings, there will be an AIA kickoff meeting on Sunday, January 14th from 1-5pm at UUCA which will provide a deeper dive into white surpremacy, and will allow AIA groups to start discussing what you want to accomplish on your Allyship journey over the next six months.

Beer, Pizza, and Questions About the Universe

If you are between the ages of 21 and 35 then please join the Young Adults for beer, pizza, and questions about the universe.  The event is BYOB, bring your own beer, but the pizza will be provided.  We discuss topics ranging from politics, to science, to philosophy.  Every time the topic is different but the discussion is always interesting.

7:30 PM-9:00 PM English Improvement Class - Room 12

The UUCA ESOL program provides free classes and conversation sessions geared to adult foreigners who are fairly proficient in English speaking and writing but seek language enrichment, grammar improvement, accent reduction, plus increased knowledge of American culture and idioms. Teacher-led classes are held on Tuesday and Thursday evenings. Conversation-only sessions are offered on Wednesday evenings and Saturday mornings. 

 ESOL includes an email-based English Writing Improvement Program assigns English writing coaches to those wishing to have their writing reviewed and improved. This is an evolving program that might include face-to-face meetings in person or via the Internet.

 ESOL also serves to introduce students to Unitarian Universalism and its place among other religions. ESOL students sometimes attend UUCAVA events and have even become members or friends.

 ESOL volunteer teachers and facilitators find their participation a joy rather than a burden, but occasionally we experience the need for new volunteers. If you are interested in volunteering in any way, please contact Ric Blacksten (ESOL Chair), 703.980.5899, hricblacksten@gmail.com.
