PeaceWorks Program

Unitarian Fellowship

On January 2nd, 2011 a PeaceWorks panel from Kansas City will present an overview of the organization using the Peace Works website with an emphasis on peace initiatives. There will be an emphasis on the Kansas City (Honeywell and Department of Energy's) Plant for the production of Nuclear Weapons. The panel will also describe the UNplaza Art Fair, the Urban Rangers Corps and Peace Studies Scholarships. Scarlett Swall's famous "Peace "VOODOO" Dolls" will be available for purchase at the Social Action table in founder's Hall. In the afternoon, persons interested in exploring further the Kansas City peace initiatives and the UUA Statement of Conscience on "Peacemaking" is welcome.

The program is being arranged by Forrest Swall in collaboration with Kansas City's Peace Works organization.

Sierra Club Riverfront Hike

See below for meet-up location

Hike at
Riverfront Bike Trail in North Lawrence
Just because it's January, doesn't mean we can't go hiking! Bundle up and enjoy a hike with no ticks or
poison ivy; just crisp, clean Kansas air and maybe a bald eagle or two. Meet at the parking lot just past 8th and Oak Streets at 10:00, then we'll hike for an hour or so, maybe less if it's bitterly cold. This is a kid-friendly event. We hope to see lots of families!

LSN is an all-volunteer organization
dedicated to learning how to live lightly and sustainably.

Sustainability requires that we restore biodiversity and environmental health, strengthen relationships within and among human communities, insist on democratic decision-making at all levels of governance, insure social and economic equity for all, promote peaceful conflict resolution, and reorient our aims from growth to stability. It means living within our means today and protecting the interests of future generations. LSN supports the efforts of individuals and organizations that work toward these goals.
