Narcan Training
Narcan training will be given at the church on Monday, June 24, from 4:00 to 5:00 p.m. The training will prepare participants to respond effectively if someone (visitor, pedestrian, etc.) suffers an opioid overdose/emergency. Narcan nasal spray (an over-the-counter drug) will be made available after the training. There is no charge for this session, and it is available to both congregation and the general public. 

Protecting Democracy
In collaboration with the Workers Circle, our congregation wrote 500 postcards to voters in the Atlanta GA area urging them to vote in Georgia’s May 22 primary. The Social Justice Team will conduct further writing drives as this election year progresses. We also recommend donations to the Workers Circle and two other organizations working to protect democracy, the movement Voter Project and Working America. All three are nonpartisan and non-profit.
