Rethinking Thanksgiving in 2020


In 2016, Unitarian Universalists voted to pay special attention to learning our history and rethinking Thanksgiving in the year 2020, in observance of the 400th anniversary of the Pilgrims landing in Plymouth. Historically, UU ministers were instrumental in creating the U.S. Thanksgiving holiday and the “Pilgrims and the Indians” pageant tradition that roots the holiday in an historically inaccurate and harmful colonial narrative. Now is the perfect time to gather and think together virtually, and to celebrate differently.


Read this special message and invitation from UUA President, Rev. Susan Frederick-Gray, regarding this event.



Harvest the Power


- a theme inspired by the hymn “Gather the Spirit” by Jim Scott - is an invitation to join together the many varied communities and justice ministries of Unitarian Universalism for this momentous season of collective action and transformation.

The Harvest the Power Justice Convergence & Teach-in is a series of excellent programs and documentary screenings to provide grounding, community, and justice education for the week of Thanksgiving.

 Register today, and help spread the word about the fantastic programs and community documentary film screenings being offered for the Harvest the Power Justice Convergence & Teach-In:
