Avenues for Justice Ministry

In accordance with our Church Mission, every Justice Ministry Team strives to support their area in one or more of the following ways:

  • Community Service - We act to help meet the needs of the people who are too often ignored, mistreated, and marginalized in our communities
  • Education - We offer opportunities for us all to embrace new information about the importance of various social issues and interpret the issue and our response(s) through the lens of liberal religious values
  • Advocacy - We work through the legislative process to impact public policy.
  • Witness - We partner with others in our community to make public by word or deed the convictions of our UU Faith and the issue at hand.
  • Community Organizing (Accountability) - We recognize that often individuals cannot effect change easily and instead require partnerships with community organizations to build strong alliances and ensure accountability and increase the likelihood of change.
