2021 Update

This page is being archived in the operating sense, yet will remain public for a while longer to honor the speakers who participated.

Sadly, there has not been high demand for UU-specific events –even prior to Covid. Best wishes to those who have participated.

Should any congregation or group (of any denomination or affiliation) wish to learn the valuable fundraising and outreach strategies taught in this program, email: uutalkshome@gmail.com and our interfaith team is happy to assist.
