NASRIN is an immersive portrait of the world’s most honored human rights activist and political prisoner, attorney Nasrin Sotoudeh, and of Iran’s remarkably resilient women’s rights movement. In the courts and on the streets, Nasrin has long fought for the rights of women, children, religious minorities, journalists and artists, and those facing the death penalty. In the midst of filming, Nasrin was arrested in June 2018 for representing women who were protesting Iran’s mandatory hijab law. She was sentenced to 38 years in prison, plus 148 lashes.

Featuring acclaimed filmmaker Jafar Panahi, Nobel Peace Prize laureate Shirin Ebadi, and journalist Ann Curry. Secretly filmed in Iran by women and men who risked arrest to make this film. Narrated by Academy Award-winner Olivia Colman.

Are you a gardener? You can participate in our new UUCS Seed Project! The UUCS Seed Project is a donation-based seed library aimed at gathering and sharing seeds for gardens within our community. Become a UUCS seed saver and help us grow better gardens and stronger communities. It’s the time of year that many plants are starting to seed.

Please set some seeds aside to share! Save a portion of the seeds from your plants and donate them to the UUCS Seed Library. We will host annual seed exchanges during spring and fall and will house a seed library here at UUCS for drop off and pick up of seeds anytime.

We have two categories: Edible and Decorative. Edible includes vegetables, fruits, grains, and herbs. Decorative includes flowers, ground covers, and other decorative plants. Already have some seeds to donate? Label an envelope with your name, contact information, and seed description, including category. Seal it and drop it in the Sanctuary Drop Box at the church.
