Big News from Standing on the Side of Love

Dear Standing on the Side of Love Supporters,

It is with a whole mix of bittersweet emotions that I am writing to let you know that as of the end of October, I will be leaving my position as Campaign Manager of Standing on the Side of Love. In my nearly three years here, there is so much that we can be proud of in our work together. From our support of the #100Women100Miles Pilgrimage with our partners at the We Belong Together coalition to celebrating the SCOTUS Marriage Equality win at General Assembly, both in the past few months, to the emergence of the UU support across the country for the Black Lives Matter movement, it has been a busy three years harnessing the power of love to stop oppression!

Family obligations called me to California to start a new life with my new husband, and the hardest part has been realizing that I would have to leave the campaign. While I might be moving on from a leadership position with Standing on the Side of Love, there will always be a huge part of this campaign in my heart. I have been inspired, challenged, encouraged, and educated by all of you over the past several years, and I will be eternally grateful for the chance to have worked alongside so many people of faith working together to build a new way.

And now, the exciting part!! We are looking for a new Campaign Director to come aboard and help take our work to the next level. Check out an updated job description here, and share this with your networks. Know someone who might be perfect for this position? Please encourage them to apply! Standing on the Side of Love is committed to building a diverse and inclusive team and strongly encourages applications from emerging leaders who are committed to intersectional justice work and who identify as People of Color, People with disabilities, veterans, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, or who are at the various intersections of any of the above listed identities.

In the meantime, please send a note of encouragement to Nora Rasman, who will stay onboard as our Campaign Coordinator. As we begin the hiring search, share your hopes and dreams for this campaign in the future, by emailing us at love {at} uua.org.

With a heart full of love and gratitude,

Jennifer Toth Clary
