Last week, we announced the #ReviveLove Tour - providing political and spiritual sustenance for movement. We’re thrilled to be collaborating with Black Lives of Unitarian Universalism and Rev. Sekou & the Holy Ghost to bring support and healing to folks around the country.
In each city, we’ll be connecting with Unitarian Universalists and grassroots movement leaders from across the country including chapter leaders of Black Lives Matter and Showing Up for Racial Justice (SURJ). With the organizing and leadership of BLUU, we’ll be able to support and facilitate spaces for connection and healing for Black UUs in a number of the cities where we meet.
Each stop on the tour will include our collective goals for the #ReviveLove Tour:
1. ‘Fortify the Movement’ set of guided reflections with Standing on the Side of Love
2. An explicitly Pro-Black and Pro-Trans/GNC show by Rev. Sekou and the Holy Ghost in every site in relationship with local and national artists.
3. Training and 1:1 support ‘clinics’ for lead organizers in local communities
4. Strong local partnering in every site to build longer-term networked relationships
But we can’t do this without your help. Click here to support the #ReviveLove Tour!
Current planned tour stops include Knoxville, TN, Nashville, TN, Atlanta, GA, St. Louis, MO and New Orleans, LA. We are going to the South first and St. Louis. There is a hunger and desire for us to come there. We have heard the immediate and urgent call. We are responding. We also know that sites like St. Louis have been continuing to struggle on the ground and don’t always get the support they need. We also know that the South historically is under resourced in terms of movement building and faith-based organizing support.
We’re considering this a pilot and know that many folks are interested in such a space being created in their communities as well - and hoping that if all goes well at these initial sites, additional locations may possibly be added in the Spring.
BLUU has pulled together an awesome and comprehensive list of additional ways you can support the #ReviveLove Tour. Check it out here.
We're so excited to be able to support this visionary, important work. Join us and support today!
With love & solidarity,
Team Standing on the Side of Love
