Jamestown, N.Y. – The Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Jamestown (UUCJ) continues its exploration of Women’s History Month on Sunday, March 20.
Kristin Chambers addresses “On Women and the Struggle for Self-determination” at the 10:30 a.m. hybrid service.
The former Chautauqua County resident says that while women have made amazing progress over the past century, it has not been without struggle nor without setbacks. She asks, “What does our history tell us that will empower us to move forward in these especially trying times?”
Chambers was a professor of social work, spent many years as a youth and family counselor, and retired in 2017 from writing training programs in the social services for the Center for the Development of Human Services at Buffalo State College. While she is an active volunteer at the Olean Food Pantry, the Health Care Access Coalition, and the summer Veggie Wheels program, her favorite thing is being a grandma of three. She lives in Hinsdale, N.Y., with her husband, Ed Miner.
A social time follows the service.
While not mandated, vaccines, masks, and appropriate distancing are encouraged for those who participate in the service in person.
Participation can be either in person at 1255 Prendergast Avenue in Jamestown or online. To join virtually, use the link at UUJamestown.org/calendar.
