General Assembly is coming to Portland in June! GA is the annual gathering of the UUA and brings UU’s from all around the country together. It can be an amazing experience to see so many UU’s in one place: worshipping, learning, practicing democracy, and witnessing together. The location of General Assembly moves around the country, and is rarely this close and easily accessible for us on the West Coast. I have never taken my children to a General Assembly before, because of the cost of airfare, but this year we can drive and so I will take the kids. I’ve got them signed up for the childcare and for the Kids Camp!
If you don’t want or need the childcare, Child-With-Parent registration for GA is free. But there is also childcare, a UU kids camp for the middle graders, and youth caucus for high schoolers that you can sign up for. Many of the events and workshops at GA are also designed to be multigenerational. I think it’s a wonderful opportunity for all the families at OUUC to have GA so close this year! Registration will open on March 2nd, and childcare spots are limited. Register early if you want to save yourself a spot. See the UUA website for more information.
