First Parish in Wayland: “The Practice of Solidarity: An Invitation To Be Fully Human”

On Sunday, Feb. 25 at 10 a.m., join us for a service led by Claire-Karl B.W. Müller of Unitarian Universalist (UU) Mass Action. UU Mass Action is a Massachusetts-based non-profit to engage UUs in action for state-level justice. Claire-Karl will speak to their mission of solidarity, and what it means to show up as an ally, specifically in their campaigns for Indigenous Justice, Immigrant Justice, Climate and Environmental Justice, and Ending Solitary Confinement.

Claire-Karl has been described as a force of nature. They are a fifth-generation Germanic settler in Eastern Massachusetts and identify as a white, middle-class, non-binary, small-fat, queer organizer. Their values are curiosity, compassion, truth, and people power. They have organized at the local, state, and federal level on climate and environmental justice since 2007, winning victories to stop pipelines, transition coal-fired power plants to solar, and build community. Claire-Karl is coordinator of the statewide climate justice coalition Mass Power Forward, which they co-founded in 2015, as well as the UU Mass Action staff lead for Indigenous Solidarity.
