2014 has been an incredible year for Standing on the Side of Love. All across the country, the Love People have worked hard to build the Beloved Community. From January, when we kicked off Thirty Days of Love with a renewed commitment to voting rights, through the spring with lots of actions on immigration reform, to celebrating our fifth anniversary at the UUA General Assembly, it’s been a busy year for love! In July dozens of UU clergy got arrested for immigration reform in front of the White House, then September saw the largest ever People’s Climate March, with hundreds of UUs. Together, we held vigils from Boston to LA following the killing of Michael Brown and the grand jury decision in November, and we are ending the year filled with both frustration and hope. This web-based magazine is a look back at 2014 as an opportunity to honor and celebrate all of the hard work of Love People all over the country.
Before we welcome 2015, we know how important it is to allow time to reflect back on the past year. We put together this end of the year review to honor and celebrate all the hard work of our supporters. Check out www.TogetherontheSideofLove.org to view our year-end review! You can click through each month to take a trip down social justice memory lane.
As you look through these powerful images of your fellow Love People in action, we encourage you to reflect back on the past year, and think ahead to the coming year. What called your heart this year? What restored your soul as we worked together to bring more love into this world?
Together, let’s stand on the side of love and continue to build the Beloved Community in 2015 and beyond!
Jen, Nora and the SSL team
