Social Justice at A2U2
Unitarian Universalists have a legacy of “deeds not creeds.” 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.
We are proud of Allen Avenue UU Church’s rich history of pursuing social justice in our community and around the world. We’d love to have you join us!
