Social Justice Council
Our vision is that we believe social justice work is a natural outgrowth of a healthy, nurturing church community as we seek to act out our Seven UU Principles in the world. We believe that social justice work should be reciprocal, and based on honored and dignified relationships in order that the good work be enduring, sustainable, and transformative for all involved.
Our mission, in conjunction with our minister, is to nurture our identity as a social justice congregation. To that end, we support, guide, and collaborate with existing and emerging groups of congregants who want to address a social justice need using the resources of the Church.
We will effect this:
- By engaging the congregation with opportunities to do meaningful justice work (systemic change) and mercy work (service/relief).
- By partnering with religious, social service, and advocacy groups to magnify our impact.
- By expanding, deliberately and strategically, the range of social justice ministries to which we commit.
- By reflecting on and evaluating our efforts so that the Fellowship keeps faith with its stated mission to “practice justice…as a congregation.”
