Social Justice Committee

 

Get Involved with Social Justice Issues

The Social Justice Committee works to raise social justice awareness by organizing study groups and other events, and inform the congregation of pertinent issues of justice including Study Action Issues and Statements of Conscience voted upon at UUA General Assemblies. The committee also monitors and supports local justice efforts, coordinates requests for funding and social action programming, including Special Collections and the WE Pantry. The committee submit proposals as needed to the Board of Trustees.
