Social Justice Committee
The role of the Allen Avenue Unitarian Universalist Social Justice Committee is to coordinate activities, educate our congregation, and encourage members to take an active role in social justice according to our UU Principles. The 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.
Meetings are held the fourth Wednesday of the month, September through June. While the building is closed, meetings are held on Zoom from 6-7 PM. All are welcome to attend. Check the events calendar for more information.
The Social Justice Committee also:
- Coordinates the Share the Plate nominating process

- Facilitates discussion of the UUA Common Read selection annually.
- Connects the congregation to MUUSAN – our Maine UU State Advocacy Network – and to social justice activities of our Northern New England District and UUA
