Jamestown, N.Y. – “Qanon, psy ops, authoritarianism, climate change, disinformation: It's so confusing! How do we even begin to understand what’s going on?”
From this perspective, Linda Hiers speaks on “Toto!! Where the Heck Are We?” at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Jamestown (UUCJ) hybrid service on Sunday, December 11, 2022, 10:30 a.m.
The message most relates to the fifth of the seven Principles that Unitarian Universalist congregations affirm and promote: “The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large.”
A member of UUCJ for more than 15 years, Hiers has a keen interest in social justice issues, reading and studying national and global issues that are currently challenging democracies around the world. Her talk is a manifestation of that interest and her sense of alarm as our nation's democracy is under assault.
Hiers received a BA in Sociology from the University of Texas and her Masters in Social Work from the University of Buffalo. Now retired, she worked primarily as a clinical social worker, providing mental health counseling in various inpatient and outpatient settings. The last years of her career she spent as a hospice social worker.
A social time follows the service.
