As part of the Racial Justice Ministry’s ongoing support of Right Relationship Boulder, we want to invite UUCB members to support upcoming activities. It is anticipated that there will be between 150-200 Arapaho coming the weekend of October 6-8 to share their culture with the Boulder community and to work in the BVSD schools for a day. The RJM will be part of the effort to provide lunch to the Arapaho guests on Sunday, October 7. If you want to join us and help, please contact Nina Peterson or look for a sign up table in the Fellowship time on Sundays. The project is also in need of financial contributions to support the Arapaho people who are coming to Boulder. Consider donating $150 which is the cost of one night’s lodging through their fund raising partner.

- Monday, Sept. 17, 5:45 0 7:45, Right Relationship Boulder monthly meeting at Reynolds Branch Library
- Friday, Sept. 28, 7-9 pm “Two Rivers” film/discussion/fund raiser for “Welcome the Arapaho People Home,” Bethlehem Lutheran Church, 1000 West 15th Ave, Longmont. Co-sponsored by Boulder Showing Up for Racial Justice (BSURJ) and Light of Christ Ecumenical Catholic Community, Longmont.
