Join Lift Up Your Voice, the Ventura Interfaith Minister's Association, and the Board of Trustees of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Ventura in telling the Ventura City Council that the city does not have the authority to decide who is worthy of being a member of a church, nor do they have the power to tell a church what is valid church programming and what is not. Read the UUCV Appeal of the Harbor Church Planning Commission Denial filed by the Rev. David Pyle at the direction of the UUCV Board of Trustees, and join us to fill the City Council Chambers to demand that they respect the Religious Freedom found in the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Come defend the rigths of the homeless of our community to come together as a church, have meals as a church, worship as a church, and participate in programming as a church.
Join other volunteers from across Ventura County in the annual counting of our homeless population. The data that we collect in this count will be used to help determine services and to express to the state and federal government what the need is for assisting our homeless population in Ventura. Lift Up Your Voice has a tradition of providing many of the volunteers for this important work, and we call upon all LUYV Volunteers to turn out again this year. To register for a shift, please visit 2014 Homeless Count to sign up for a shift. Training will be offered prior to the day of the count.
