For Immediate Release: Amy Polk Memorial Service Update

The service for Amy Polk will be Friday June 18 at 2 pm. The service will be held at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Silver Spring, 10309 New Hampshire Avenue, Silver Spring MD 20903. Directions and a map to the church are available online at this address:

There will be parking available at the church and about 1.5 blocks away, but a large attendance is anticipated so you are strongly urged to carpool and/or arrive early. If you need handicapped access parking please come very early to assure your access to on-site parking.

In accordance with Unitarian Universalist tradition, there will be a time for sharing stories or memories during the service but because that time will be limited, we ask that people from an area of Amy’s life (college, work, advocacy/birth groups) choose one speaker who can speak for a minute or two about their experience of Amy.

For those who can’t attend or are unable to speak at the service but wish to provide words in honor of Amy, please send your remembrances to this address: so they may be included in the memory book being assembled for Amy’s family.

In lieu of flowers, please send donations to Seasons of Life Birth Center


  1. Will definitely be there, John. I'm not sure who will speak but we will work out who it will be and keep it limited. I'll talk to the BOA about this and hope they will have someone willing to do it. Sending you another hug!!
