During worship on May 8, Jenna preached about the leaked SCOTUS draft Dobbs decision. She included a list of action items, first published by the UUA and Side With Love, that she said she’d include in the next few editions of the Bell Notes. The list is as follows: 

  • You can join their “upcoming political education event, Heart-to-Heart: Abortion Conversations & Action for a Post-Roe World, Tuesday, May 17 at 8pm eastern.
  • You can “Support local organizing for abortion access and Reproductive Justice. Form a congregational team, educate yourselves, join with other progressive people of faith, follow the lead of your local Reproductive Justice organization.”
  • You can “Donate to your local abortion fund to ensure that everyone who needs an abortion can afford one.”
  • You can “Get involved with SACReD, the Spiritual Alliance of Communities for Reproductive Dignity, which is building a multi-racial, multi-faith movement of congregations across the country. It’s so new that it doesn’t have a full website, but you can sign up for future communications here.”
  • You can “Get involved with the work of the Liberate Abortion Coalition, and consider participating in the upcoming Abortion Crisis Caravan this June.”  

Keep the faith, beloveds. And join the fight! Onward, Jenna.
