UUWF Luncheon ~ Saturday, April 15
Muslim Women Speak
Join us to hear the voices of Muslim women in New Mexico. Our presenters will talk about the role of the New Mexico Muslim Women's Association in providing support and education for Muslim women in New Mexico. In addition to coming together as a group in an open forum to exchange ideas and discuss issues concerning Islam and Muslims, the Association offers an annual retreat for women ages 12 and older who are interested in spiritual renewal and enrichment from an Islamic perspective.
Several members of the association speak share their experiences as Muslims living in the culture of New Mexico and provide an opportunity for Q&A.

Santa Fe Unitarian Universalist Women’s Federation
The Santa Fe Unitarian Universalist Women’s Federation (UUWF) is affiliated with the national UUWF organization that advances justice for women and promotes their spiritual growth. UUWF is an independent non-profit, 501 (c) (3) associate member organization of the Unitarian Universalist Association. The Santa Fe chapter is a part of this national organization and an affiliate organization of the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Santa Fe (UUCSF).
Our UUWF in Santa Fe is one of the largest and most active groups in the country. Six of our members have received the Clara Barton award from UUWF national. We have over 60 members, with many others being on our mailing list. Members do not have to be members of UU Santa Fe. UUWF membership is $25 a year, paid in the fall.
We have nine luncheons each year – one a month from September through May on the third Saturday. We have a weekend retreat in early June. Also, we have recently enjoyed two organized trips – one to Ajijic Mexico and another to the Bosque del Apache in Socorro.
We pride ourselves on being THE PLACE to get to know other women if you are new to UU Santa Fe or to the city of Santa Fe. Our informal and friendly luncheons are preceded by a social time. Members volunteer during the year to help with one luncheon. Each luncheon has a program given by an interesting Santa Fean, including some of our own members. The luncheon cost is $8 for members and $10 for nonmembers.
The proceeds from the luncheons, and the majority of the money from dues, are distributed in the spring to local charities that benefit women and children in the Santa Fe area.
