About 10 choir members showed up, along with our yellow Standing On The Side Of Love banner and lead the singing with help from the Jobs with Justice guitarist and singers. We sang in support of WalMart workers’ quest for living wages. We thank Jobs with Justice for inviting us to join them. We’ll also be posting some of the songs we sang – appropriate for workers’ rights rallies.
Stay tuned for more information – we’re talking about joining other UUs from across Texas for the opening session of the Texas Legislature – on January 20, 2015.
We’ll have a rehearsal/singalong on Wednesday, December 10, 7 pm at Arlington UU (thank you Arlington for hosting!). Arlington UU is located at 2001 California Lane, Arlington, TX.
If you are coming from Dallas, we can carpool from Oak Cliff UU; meeting at 6:15, departing at 6:30.
For those who have not attended our “rehearsals”, these are not formal affairs. We sing because we like to sing and we are passionate about social justice. We get together so that we can all become familiar with the songs in our repertoire, and build confidence for when we do go to demonstrations/rallies.
If you have any questions, please email me (firstname.lastname@example.org).
See you Wednesday, December 10!
