Social Action at A2U2
Unitarian Universalists have a legacy of “deeds not creeds.” Our work for a better world calls us to unexpected places as we harness love’s power to stop oppression. 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.
Our justice efforts are grounded in our call to break down divisions, heal isolation, and honor the interconnectedness of all life and all justice issues. We model these commitments by creating just, welcoming, and inclusive congregations. We act in partnership with groups and communities most impacted by injustice on local, state, national, and international levels.
Our Social Action Committee meets monthly and provides a venue for members to share information about activities and areas of concern in the larger community, discuss ways to coordinate their efforts, and develop social action initiatives to propose to the congregation as a whole.
We are proud of Allen Avenue UU Church’s rich history of pursuing social justice in our community and around the world.
