Members of the Hopedale Unitarian Universalist Community of Oxford will join with numerous other community groups on Tuesday, October 25, to stand in opposition to the picketing Westboro Baptist Church at Miami University. Hopedale is a part of the national “Standing on the Side of Love” campaign sponsored by the Unitarian Universalist Association. The campaign elevates compassionate religious voices to fight oppression.
Miami’s Spectrum group is coordinating action against the anti-gay Westboro group’s plan to picket on campus. Plans for the peaceful counter-picket event can be found at the Spectrum Website. – Submitted by Judi Hetrick
