Celebrating Queens Pride
Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Queens 147-54 Ash Ave Flushing NY 11355
Next Meeting Sunday September 16th 12:30pm
While we have enjoyed the warm sun and travel during the summer, many of us have continued our involvement in rallies, gatherings and meetings to promote social justice. We strive to fulfill our first Unitarian Universalist principle; "The inherent worth and dignity of every person.”
Our first Social Justice Committee meeting since June will be held on Sunday September 16th at 12:30pm at UUCQ. We will come to share and look toward working together to create a more just world.
The world is broken; full of suffering. Our goal is not to be overwhelmed by what needs to be done, but to focus on what we can do. Please join us in the resistance. We can extend our hands to others in a suffering world.
The Lewis H. Latimer House Museum received an award of $1000.00 from the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Queens to support the museum’s Tinker Lab program for local children in honor of Lewis H. Latimer, the African American inventor who helped found the congregation in the early 1900’s. (Sherrise Figueroa, Director, Latimer Gardens Community Center/Cornerstone; Al Rankins, President, Lewis H. Latimer Fund, Inc.; Sheryl Lynch, Trustee of the Board, Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Queens; Ran Yan, Executive Director, Lewis H. Latimer House Museum.)
The Tinker Lab is the key educational program at Lewis H. Latimer House Museum to serve high-quality, innovative hands-on activities treating science and technology as an integral part of the humanities. In the Tinker Lab, participants use an array of technologies such as Scratch, Ev3, and Wedo, and build from scratch using various micro-controllers, proto boards, and coding programs. The museum sees the drive to build in three-dimensional spaces and coding as an invaluable 21st century literacy skillset.
