Social Action Committee
The Social Action Committee (SAC) is one key way we “walk the talk” and work toward our core UU Fellowship belief of justice for all members of the greater community. Broadly, we believe in and work to create a healthy and sustainable planet and to support and advocate for human and civil rights.
We invite you to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org to:

“The arc of the universe is long, but it bends toward justice.”
Current Social Action Committee Priorities
Fair Government and Voting Rights. We work to assure that all voices are heard and represented at all levels of our government.
Environmental Justice. We act both locally and nationally to find community solutions for a sustainable, healthy future planet and to hold private and public entities accountable.
Racial and Economic Justice. Historical, systemic injustices have produced a dearth of economic opportunity for many. We advocate for fair and compassionate immigration policies. We accompany and advocate for people threatened by deportation. We stand up for human rights and the dignity of all people. We proudly support Black Lives Matter.
Community Action. Our Share the Plate monetary offerings and our individual efforts support others in our broader community, including public school education, food bank distribution, victims of domestic violence, and those with economic hardship or homeless.
From grassroots community organizing to state and national advocacy; in protest marches and prayer vigils; in homeless shelters and in prisons, we put our faith into action.
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”
