June Roundtable Schedule

May 21, 2017

 

 

We are on our summer schedule, so Roundtable will meet from 9:00-10:00am in the Library of the Unitarian Universalist Church, 2000 S. Solano.  Our goal is to learn more about all sides of issues and to learn more about one another.  If you have a topic you would like discussed, contact Jim Basler, roundtable@uuchurchlc.org.

 

June 4 – “I Am Me: Understanding the Intersections of Gender, Sexuality, and Identity” is an educational training film that explores the challenges our LGBTQ+ young people face and how adults can be supportive allies.  JT Perez, Board member of Equality New Mexico, will be on hand to field questions and comments following the film.

 

June 11“Water Wars: The world’s shortage of fresh water and New Mexico’s own water issues” Steven Hannes, Hydrographer for USGS New Mexico Water Science Center, will tell us all about from the global to the local level.

 

June 18 – “UUCLC and Social Justice; a group discussion”  Social justice has deep roots in the history of the Unitarian Universalist Association.  How do we here in Las Cruces contribute to this effort?  We will discuss the new vision and mission statements of the SJC, and process and report on the congregation’s social justice profile gleaned from the current survey.  Where do we go from here?  Discussion will be facilitated by Elisa Sanchez, chair of the Social Justice Committee.

 

June 25  “Past and Present Algeria: The Tantalizing Past of the Tassili n’Ajjer, the Ruins of Rome’s Breadbasket, and Contemporary Experiences in Algeria”  Margaret Berrier recently returned from exploring rock art of Tassili n’Ajjer (Rock Art of the Plateau of the Rivers) in southeastern Algeria.  It is unique because of its isolation and its evidence of climate change which will be demonstrated by looking at the imagery from the early Neolitic through the complete desertification that exists today.  Margaret will also have us visit the Roman ruins of Timgad, Djemila and Timpasa.
