We Rise to Resist Book Presentation

Description: YOU ARE INVITED JUNE 28, from 7-9, for a book presentation at First Unitarian Society, 900 University Bay Drive. The book is We Rise to Resist: Voices from a New Era in Women's Political Action. "I'm not giving up -- and neither should you" became the mantra for women everywhere who were deeply disappointed in the outcome of the 2016 presidential election. One result were the marches by huge numbers of angry people on January 21, 2017, motivated by the fact that a misogynist had been elected President of the United States. Another result is We Rise to Resist. Thirty-six resisters have contributed essays and interviews to this work, including a former Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice, an award-winning female theologian, a New Mexico assistant Attorney General and a naturalized Muslim-American. And, Prairie's own Rev. Sandy had the honor of writing the last essay in the book to wrap it all up. Please join her on June 28th to celebrate the publication of this inspiring collection!!
