As Unitarian Universalists, we have a legacy of “deeds, not creeds.” Our church has a long and proud history of working on behalf of social justice issues. We’ve been very active in civil rights struggles, and have long welcomed people of all races, all religious backgrounds, all sexual orientations.
Our Justice Committee provides leadership for social justice issues of interest and concern to our church community, the metropolitan area, and to our state, nation, and global community. We define justice in terms of ethical principles of fairness and equity in all relationships—social, religious, political, and economic. We direct our concern to those social structures that are detrimental to the economic and environmental interests of impacted populations. We assert our commitment to the peaceful resolution of conflict, recognizing the worth and dignity of all persons. We also strive to sustain and nurture the natural world–the interdependent web of existence of which we are a part.
