As in previous years, UU Justice Florida is offering a PARTIAL REBATE of $50.00 for the cost of the April 10 hotel for each of the first two rooms reserved by Unitarian Universalist congregations in Florida. On the reservation form, where it says "company name", list the name of your congregation (spelled out). To encourage participation from Unitarian Universalists all over the state, UU Justice Florida is offering this incentive as we did for the two Healing Our World and Ourselves conferences in 2013 and 2014. Interfaith participants will benefit from the discounted group rate at the hotels, although not the special rebate for Unitarian Universalists. This is the first INTERFAITH CONFERENCE we are pleased to be offering with the Florida Council of Churches, and we hope many UUs will participate along with members of all faiths concerned about the important issue of climate change. Together we can make a difference.
