Social Justice in Community
Part of our fellowship’s fundamental mission is to engage in social justice. We strive to make a positive difference on immigration, racial and environmental justice, climate change, education and more. The fellowship does this by supporting individuals to be community leaders and by taking stands on issues as a congregation or as part of our personal UU faith.
Eating as an Ethical Issue
As a congregation, we are taking seriously the effects that our food choices have on the planet. to learn more, see the UU Draft Statement of Conscience Ethical Eating, developed in March, 2011.
Supporting Young Women
Our community partner, Planned Parenthood, is the target of a focused 40-day protest. Planned Parenthood has asked us to volunteer to help escort women from their cars to their entrance. Many members have participated and found it to a powerful way to put our faith in action. To learn more, contact Michelle Szymanski at 408-795-3764.
