What is Share the Plate? During each Sunday service, we take a collection. This voluntarily given money is then shared between our congregation and an organization from the local community which has goals that align with Unitarian Universalist principles. This month’s Share the Plate recipient is Latinos Unidos Siempre.
Latinos Unidos Siempre [LUS] was founded in 1996 by a group of Latinx youth in Salem, who decided to take a stand against the constant profiling and criminalization of youth of color by local authorities and of immigration raids terrorizing their families.
Since then, LUS has grown as an organization that empowers youth through leadership development; which is exercised through civic engagement, grassroots organizing and community engagement.
See their Facebook page for more information.
Please consider making a separate, one-time donation this month with LUS on the memo line, or as a Share the Plate donation.
