The Verdugo HUUT! Presents: The Horror

7 p.m.

Our celebrated Hootenanny in the Hills brings L.A.'s finest musicians, storytellers, and comedians to our beautiful sanctuary for a night of music and laughs which the L.A. Times recently called "Hilarious!" and "A compelling experience."

This month's theme is THE HORROR: Music, Comedy, And Storytelling covering horrors however our performers interpret them. Scary songs? Ghost stories? Maybe an appearance by La Llorona? We don't know. Anything could happen (and still be family-friendly, of course).

Host Marty Barrett welcomes special guests Maria Alexander, Marisol Barrett, Chris Bonno, Lisa Finnie, and Steve Johnson, for a night of entertainment in our cool sanctuary that is not to be overlooked.

If you are a parent needing a date night, come right in! We have childcare available for a nominal fee, provided by licensed and trained childcare workers. Please contact Elizabeth Brown at least a week beforehand.

Recommended donation: $10

UUSC Human Right to Water

Four Bills of the Human Right To Water Bill Package have passed! After months of hard work from you and other UUSC and UULMCA supporters in California, the following four bills have become law:

  • A.B. 983, which will help communities access funds for drinking water systems
  • A.B. 1221, which will allow communities to be eligible for already allocated clean-up funds
  • A.B. 938, which will make sure people know what is in their drinking water
  • S.B. 244, which will require cities to develop plans for providing service to small communities

This is a tremendous victory. With leadership from the UU Legislative Ministry of California and the UU Service Committee, you have helped California take an enormous step forward in ensuring safe, sufficient, and affordable water for all, as we continue the work to pass A.B. 685 (the human right to water bill) in this next legislative year.

 

Protect A Child and Other Worthy Causes:

When you donate to the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee's (UUSC) Annual Fund, you are helping people around the world claim their human rights.  $30 can protect a Haitian child  living in a displacement camp from abuse, traffiking, and prostitution.  Find out what $65, $100, and more can do, and does, when you use it to support UUSC's work.
