When the Westboro Baptist Church twice came to town, spewing messages of hate toward the LGBTQ community and others, the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Plattsburgh was there. Members helped create the Stop Hate Campaign, spoke at the local college’s Unity Rally and aided students in their creation of Walk-on-By, a week filled with events that promoted understanding and love.
Whether it be helping the hungry, speaking up for the oppressed or working toward sustainable living, our members have been there. Here are just a few of the opportunities to help:
On the third Wednesday of each month, a UUFP team assembles to plan, shop for, cook, serve and clean up after the Community Meal at Trinity Church. More volunteers are always needed. You can sign up to help with one portion (shopping, food prep, cleanup) or stay through the entire meal. Contact us if you’d like to help.
Battle of Plattsburgh Parade
Each year, we gather to march in the Battle of Plattsburgh parade. This gives us a chance to share to share our beliefs and to proudly support the LGBTQ community through our rainbow banners. Wish to join us? Contact us.
From volunteers in our kitchen composting coffee hour leftovers to students planting milkweed to help monarchs, we work to live our environmental values. In fact, we are currently planning for a new fellowship building to be located on Kansas Avenue on the former Plattsburgh Air Base. Our intention is to build this to net-zero-energy standards.
