Justice: It is at the core of our Unitarian Universalist faith. We seek to create, preserve and strengthen justice in our communities through actions that address racism, the environment, housing and food security, gender equality, sexual orientation and gender identity, economic and political privilege and disparities, and the rights of Indigenous People, immigrants and the incarcerated.
The Community Care Coordinating Team assists our congregation, members and supporters to more fully live out Unitarian Universalist values, by guiding and facilitating the development of Social Justice projects that embody those values and the principles.
