The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Door County’s (UUFDC) Social Justice Committee is presenting an exhibit of posters, photos, memorabilia, crafts and poems reflecting how our right to protest promotes deeply held UU principles of equity, justice and the inherent worth and dignity of every person.
PROTEST! Bearing Witness, Seeking Justice addresses issues such as immigration, war, gun violence, environmental degradation, women’s rights, racial discrimination and the loss of “American” values. The items come from public marches and vigils, and the more private collections of members and friends, and they reach back into World War II and forward to recent Door County parades and marches.
The poems, written by Door County poets, are interspersed with images on the walls and gathered in a binder to provide further insight into the motives and attitudes behind the other works on display. Exhibit viewers may contribute their own experiences of protest on sticky notes that will become part of the exhibit. A workshop and discussion about protest will be announced for early March.
The UU Gallery, at 10341 Hwy 42 in north Ephraim, is free and open to the public 1 – 4 pm Tuesday through Friday, and 11 am – 12 pm Sunday. For more information, call 920.854.7559.
