An Exhibit of Sketches of our Neighbors in the Shadows

In 2022, UUSP member John Curtis began sitting down with one guest during each Friday Supper at the Unitarian Universalist Church of St. Petersburg, having a conversation and sketching a portrait. You are invited to view the 17 sketches, learn about our unsheltered neighbors, and speak to Dr. Curtis, who has pursued the “why’s of homelessness” his entire life. The sketches will continue to be available for viewing until June 25, 2023; appointment required.

Rally In Tallahassee In Support Of The Poor People’s Campaign
Fight back against attacks on poor and low-income Floridians, voting rights, healthcare, LGBTQ+ people, public education, the environment, reproductive rights, unions, and workers. Immigrants and incarcerated people.
Join the Florida Poor People’s Campaign in Tallahassee to send a message to Governor DeSantis, Florida, and the nation: We will not be silent! Will will not be divided! We won’t fall into despair but deepen our commitment to building a movement for justice and emboldening our agitation.
After signing up here, we will follow up with you with further information about free bus transportation to the rally from across the state and about the 3-day moral march from Havana, FL, to Tallahassee, which will culminate in the Mass Assembly.
FORWARD TOGETHER, NOT ONE STEP BACK!
Tell The Courts: Protect Medication Abortion Now
The Supreme Court granted a request to temporarily block a decision that severely restricted the use of mifepristone for abortion, allowing the medication to remain available at least until end of day Wednesday, April 19th.
Today’s ruling is not the end of the line in the case: Now the courts must put an end to this baseless case – which is part of anti-abortion extremists’ plan to ban abortion nationwide.
It threatens access not only to abortion and miscarriage care, but also to a wide swath of critical and life-saving medications. No matter what happens next, we know this fight is far from over.
The ruling in Alliance for Hippocratic Medicine v. FDA blocking FDA approval of mifepristone is unconscionable. Mifepristone – approved 23 years ago and used effectively by millions of people for medication abortion – is perfectly safe. Anti-abortion extremists are attempting to use the courts to ban abortion nationwide, even in states that have legal protections for abortion access. Join the ACLU and people across the country in urging the courts to reverse this harmful decision and uphold the law.
