UU Reversing Inequality Conference, April 3-5 in Washington D.C. Last Updated on 2017-02-26 03:59:45The rising tide of inequality, intolerance and racism makes it more important for UUs to stand up for their values. UUs for a Just Economic Community (UUJEC) and UUs for Social Justice in the National Capital Region (UUSJ) are organizing a spring conference in Washington DC to give UUs an opportunity to advocate for a vision of a fair and compassionate society directly to decision makers on Capitol Hill. We cannot take a step back on progress in equality and human rights. Now more than ever we must act.
We will be joined by several of our justice allies, including Sister Simone Campbell and Chuck Collins, build advocacy skills and spend time on Capitol Hill talking with decision makers. This is an exciting and important time to be in our nation’s capital.
Join a community of like-minded people making a difference by not only defending our gains for social and economic justice... More »
Congregational Action Guide Offers UUs Multiple Avenues for Providing Solidarity and Sanctuary to Threatened GroupsLast Updated on 2017-02-26 00:45:38As part of the joint UUSC, UUA, and College of Social Justice’s Solidarity and Sanctuary initiative, we have published a Congregational Action Guide which offers a wide range of suggested actions related to making municipalities, counties, and schools safer and more welcoming for all – particularly undocumented immigrants, Muslims, people of color, and the LGBTQ community.
The actions vary in the amount of energy and experience required so as to provide ideas for congregations of different sizes, capacities, and political environments. Some are geared towards policy advocacy while others involve developing and strengthening relationships with grassroots groups doing local organizing. There is also a category of possible discernment steps.
