Register HERE for the ReVive Retreat for Social Justice Activists
April 28-30, 2017
Several members of the Climate Justice Committee and the Fellowship Care and Support Team have been working together for several months to plan this very special retreat, which will take place at the beautiful Shalom Prayer Center in Mt. Angel, Oregon, about 55 miles from Corvallis.
Mission statement: This retreat will provide an opportunity for social justice advocates and activists within the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Corvallis to gather for respite, renewal, and connection through facilitated activities, reflection, and silence.
Facilitator: Rev. Lindi Ramsden is Acting Dean of Students and Community Life and Visiting Assistant Professor of Faith and Public Life at Starr King School for the Ministry. She has extensive experience in spiritually grounded justice ministries, making significant contributions to the movements to secure marriage equality for same-sex couples, establish the human right to water, pass health care reform, and advance immigrant rights. She is committed to engaging the climate crisis from an environmental justice perspective.
Transportation: The ReVive planning committee is arranging for bus transportation to help minimize our use of fossil fuels.
Accommodations: The ReVive Retreat includes lodging for 2 nights in a single room, six meals, and an opportunity to create a Retreat weekend of your choosing.
Registration: The registration fee is on a sliding scale, from $130 to $170. Scholarships are available, and no one will be turned away for lack of funds. If you are interested, please register by April 10. Contact anyone on the planning committee for a registration form
Planning Committee: Susan Christie, Martha Clemons, Anna Coffman, Jesse Ford, Claudia Keith, Kelley Kendall (Chair) and Diana Vezmar-Bailey.
