Magdalene House residents to visit UU Fellowship

 

magdaleneOn Sunday, January 25th at 10:30, the Unitarian Universalists Fellowship of Clarksville will host speakers from Nashville’s Magdalene House.  Everyone is invited to attend and learn about their program.

What is Magdalene House?

Women with a criminal history of prostitution and addiction are invited to stay up to two years in one of our homes rent free, in a community with other residents and no live-in staff.
During their stay, we provide a plan that is individualized for each woman that includes medical care, therapy, opportunities for addiction recovery, education and employment. Presently we have five houses and also provide an emergency safe house for four women. Our program also involves returning to the streets where Nashville prostitutes frequent as part of our continued outreach. «Read the rest of this article»

 

UnCounted shows tonight at UU Fellowship

 

co-uncounter-touch-screen.JPGThe Clarksville premiere screening of UnCounted the Movie will be held tonight at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship on Highway 41A South at 7 p.m. Admission is free. The film, written and directed by Nashville filmmaker David Earnhardt, addresses the issues surrounding electronic voting and calls for a paper trail documenting all electronic voting.

Activist Bernie Ellis, who is featured in this film, will facilitate a panel discussion on electronic voting following the film.

Earnhardt was also originally scheduled to attend this session and field questions, but a traffic accident on Thursday that injured family members precludes his attending this event.

The program is sponsored by the Unitarian Universalists, the Freethinkers for Peace and Civil Liberties, and Clarksville Online. Refreshments will be served and the public is welcomed to the first public showing in Clarksville of this important film.
