Connect for other issues

WHAT IS AN ISSUE HUB?  While the Northwest UU Justice Network supports work on more than 50 issues, there are some issues where our members' involvement spans so many individuals, congregations, events, actions, and states that we have recognized a need to increase our support with leadership development and expanded online resources and administrative services. 

ISSUE HUBs provide space for an expanded online presence for these growing inter-state issue networks.  Read more about our vision for issue networks.

These HUBs were officially launched at the 2016 Northwest Justice Summit.   More are in the works.  All are works-in-progress as are the issue networks they serve.  Please sign on to join these efforts on the individual HUB pages, or contact DD Hilke at to learn more.

Help Build a Well in Support of World Water Day, March 22, 2018 Last Updated on 2018-03-22 17:07:29 On this World Water Day, we’ve set a straightforward goal that will have a huge impact: construct two wells for families in Haiti’s Central Plateau. Wells in two communities have broken or run dry, forcing residents, often women and children, to trek miles for water. With your help, we can change this by building two wells in two separate villages before the dry season sets in. Please join us with a donation of $25, $35 or $50 toward the construction of two solar-powered wells. On a recent visit to these villages, I saw firsthand how these villages symbolize hope and joy for displaced families who are rebuilding their lives after a devastating earthquake. Proximity to a well and access to drinking water is critical to their livelihood and success. Please join us on World Water Day to multiply that hope and joy with two solar-powered wells. Together, we can make a... More »
Demand that US Forestry Service Fight Hate Crimes Against Apache Nation, Online, March 22, 2018 Last Updated on 2018-03-22 15:10:36 We write as people of faith and moral conscience—Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Apache, and people of other faiths and not of faith—to condemn the immoral and unconstitutional hate crime committed against an Apache Nation sacred site last week in Oak Flat, Arizona. Four crosses were hacked and destroyed and a vehicle desecrated the site, leaving tire marks and scattering ceremonial eagle feathers. The Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call For Moral Revival, which is co-organized by thousands of people and groups from over 30 states, the District of Columbia, the Apache Nation, and other areas, demands an immediate response from the federal law enforcement officials who have jurisdiction of the Oak Flat area. Sign our petition to demand an immediate investigation from the U.S. Forest Service Agency. As of today, the U.S. Forest Service Agency has failed to... More »
