Resist the Criminalization of People Who Migrate


At General Assembly in Kansas City, MO, Unitarian Universalists overwhelmingly voted to adopt an Action of Immediate Witness calling for the abolition of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and an end to family separation and the detention of asylum seekers. Learn what you and your congregation can do to end family separation and #AbolishICE.

 

Mobilize for Democracy this Election Season


There are so many ways to live out Unitarian Universalist values in this election season and the stakes could not be higher. If you or your congregation are supporting democracy at this time, please let us know about it. We will share our resources and timely updates with you.

Funds are still available from the Fund for UU Social Responsibility for your 2018 Get Out The Vote projects. The application deadline is rolling and ends November 1, 2018. Grants will be available until the fund is depleted. Learn more from the UU Funding Program.

Must-Reads For These Times

 

The 2018-2019 UU Common Read selection, "Justice on Earth: People of Faith Working at the Intersections of Race, Class, and Environment," shows how environmental justice, racial justice, and economic justice are not competing issues, but intertwined. Justice on Earth is a 2018 Skinner House book edited by Manish Mishra-Marzetti and Jennifer Nordstrom.
