Saturdays, February 18 through April 15 (except April 8th) 10:30- Noon
Unitarian Universalist Meeting House, Fleck Room
819 Main Street, Chatham MA 02633
The Unitarian Universalist Meeting House, Chatham is pleased to present a series of public forums on the freedoms found in the constitution led by Rev. Edmund Robinson, minister of the UUMH and one-time lawyer, and assisted by Don Bakker, popular and highly rated political science teacher at Nauset Regional High School.
The meetings are free and open to the public. Participation in the form of questions, comments and discussion is encouraged and expected.
Before Rev. Robinson became a UU minister, Robinson practiced law in Charleston SC and Boston. During that time, he was active in the ACLU, and handled several civil liberties cases amid a general litigation practice. Rev. Robinson, ordained in 1999 after graduating from Harvard Divinity School, has been the minister at the UUMH in Chatham since 2009.
Many people watching the developments unfold in the new administration are concerned with the preservation of American constitutional freedoms — freedom of speech and of the press, freedom of religion, freedom of association and so on. The UU Meeting House shares those concerns and offers the public this forum to learn and discuss the topic.
The forums will be held on Saturdays at 10:30 am until noon from February 25 to April 15 at the Meeting House, 819 Main St. Chatham, across from the Chatham Village Market. Meetings will be held in the Fleck room, the downstairs room of the meeting house.
