Social Justice

Make a Difference!

Our church covenant declares that “We, the members of First Unitarian, agree to . . . be a positive force for social, environmental, and economic action.”

Social Justice is a key element in our Unitarian Universalist DNA.  Our Social Justice Council coordinates and sponsors a variety of programs that allow First Unitarian volunteers to make a difference in our community and in the world, and “walk the talk” of our covenant. For more information, contact Social Justice Council member Peggy Whitmore, at peggywhitmore@comcast.net, or get involved directly with one of our programs.

The Social Justice Council has a small amount of funds available as grants. This is awarded to community groups – both within and outside the church -whose work reflects our values. You can find the application here.
