Unitarian Universalists have a legacy of “deeds not creeds.” From grassroots community organizing to interfaith state, national, and corporate advocacy; in protest marches, prayer vigils, and press conferences; in homeless shelters and in prisons, Unitarian Universalists put our faith into action.
UU justice ministries focus on key priorities for our congregations and communities:
UU the Vote
Climate and Environmental Justice
All life is interconnected. Creating a sustainable way of life is central to our view of a just and compassionate world. We act knowing that those who are most impacted by environmental destruction are often with the least power.
We stand on the side of love with all families, regardless of citizenship status, and strive to create welcoming communities and congregations.
Each of us has worth and dignity, and that worth includes our gender and our sexuality. As Unitarian Universalists (UUs), we not only open our doors to people of all sexual orientations and gender identities, we value diversity of sexuality and gender and see it as a spiritual gift. All of who you are is sacred. All of who you are is welcome.
Every person has value as a member of the human family. The suffering caused by racism must be ended if we want to create fair and loving communities.
We create safe and healthy environments for children in our faith communities and campaign publicly for just and compassionate laws for family planning, reproductive health, and gender equality.
