350.org Seattle came up with a great plan to honor the Salish Sea on September 15th with a Salish Sea Day of Action! Communities around the Sea will be putting events together to educate and/or honor the Salish Sea.
We're going to have an event at the Agnus Dei Lutheran Church from 7-9 PM where we'll be screening the documentary, The Rights of Nature: A Global Movement, and we'll have a discussion after the screening about what we're doing to get rights of nature for the Southern Resident Killer Whales.
We are working to establish legal rights for the Southern Resident Killer Whale. Under our current legal system humans and corporations have legal standing but animals and ecosystems don’t. We believe that animals and ecosystems should also have legal rights and be able to defend those rights in court. For more information please contact Kriss A. Kevorkian, PhD, MSW
Our Next PUUF Fellowship meets on Sept. 9 at 4:00 pm at Agnus Dei Lutheran Church. We will have a traditional water service. Anyone is welcome and we invite you to bring a small amount of water from somewhere you traveled this summer or from a source that is meaningful to you. We welcome Bridget Laflin, who will lead our service. She is halfway through her training as a seminary student at Seattle University pursing her Master of Divinity degree. She lives in Shoreline, WA with her husband and two children. She enjoys hanging out with friends, playing board games, and performing with her comedy improv troupe. After she completes her education, she plans to become a Unitarian Universalist minister.
Our deepest condolences and sympathy are with Amy Wilkerson, whose beloved Albert Wilkerson, Jr. passed away at his home on Fox Island on August 15th, 2018. He was a proud member of the United States Marine Corps, retiring as Master Sergeant. Albert was also a teacher for many years with San Diego Unified School District. He will be greatly missed by family and friends. Please refer to www.edwardsmemorial.com for full memorial.
