Justice: Jurors Required

Online Services will be live-streamed via Facebook on Sundays at 10:00 AM.  Video recordings of services can be found on YouTube.  

There are two elements that are sacred and necessary to democracy, liberty, and justice. Yes, we all know and frequently hear about voting, but juries are also foundational to our democracy (see Article III, Section 2, and the 6th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution). If you or someone you care about were facing charges, you would want fair and engaged peers on the jury. With support from congregation members, we will lift up jury duty. The legal system doesn’t do justice; people do. Jurors have a lot to say and are impacted by their service. Serving on a jury relates to most of our 7 UU principles; can you help others look at it with a fresh perspective?
