RiZe Up! — Roy Zimmerman in Concert at All Souls (3 February 2020)

Please join us on Monday (3 February 2020) at 7:00 PM for RiZe Up! — Roy Zimmerman in Concert at All Souls.

Admission is $25.00 (or whatever you can pay).

If you want to come to the concert, don’t let money stand in your way.

Join us, and bring your friends, to welcome Roy Zimmerman back to Shreveport and All Souls.

Roy’s signature blend of heart and hilarity has never been more necessary.

RiZe Up is ninety minutes of Roy Zimmerman’s original songs — a funny and forceful affirmation of peace and social justice.

It’s laughter and encouragement for progressive-minded people who need a lot of both.

Transgender Day of Remembrance (16 November 2019)

The Shreveport / Bossier area Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDoR) will be happening this Saturday (16 November 2019) at 6:30 PM.  The event will be held at All Souls Unitarian Universalist Church (9449 Ellerbe Road, Shreveport LA).

It is a sad fact that in 2019 we must still come together to remember those who have died simply for being who they are.

However, in this commemoration we also try to lift up the triumphs, including election results in various states in the past two years.

This observance of TDoR is planned and hosted by the Shreveport chapter of Louisiana Trans Advocates.
