RRUUC’s Contemporary Issues Forum (also called Coffee, Conversation, and Controversy) has been informing our members and guests for the past 35 years with over 30 programs per season. The programs often focus on social justice issues, but also include an eclectic range of topics including foreign relations, U.S. security, state and federal government policy, art, history, nature and more.

We are using safe practices during this period of COVID, and the Forum will always be online, via Zoom, 12:00pm-1:00pm. Upcoming dates will be publicized in the eWeekly, and the link to attend will be sent in our “worship links” email the Saturday before each Forum. If you are interested in attending a Forum and are not on our mailing list, please contact us.

“Preparing for Emergencies: Are you Red Cross Ready?” from Candice Covin, American Red Cross

Everyone knows the American Red Cross helps people during major emergencies. But did you know that there are more families displaced in your neighborhood than you may think, e.g., from house fires and floods? And did you know that it’s also part of the Red Cross’ mission to help you help yourself? Becoming “Red Cross Ready” for an emergency means following simple steps in advance to ensure you can weather a crisis safely and comfortably. Being prepared may not prevent a disaster, but it will give you confidence to meet the challenge. Ms. Covin will review the actions that can help make a difference.
