Social Justice

Communities are groups of living things which exist together. Justice is right-treatment. Social Justice is

right-treatment of and within communities. That means SOCIAL JUSTICE applies to all people, everywhere . . . all animals anywhere . . . and even all the land that is Earth. Unitarian Universalists have always known that our religious theology is tied to social justice.

There are unlimited opportunities to help foster Social Justice, and we each have personal favorites to which we contribute individually. Our Fellowship also collectively advocates for Social Justice. Here are some examples of our congregational efforts:

 

  • rally at Clinton County Courthouse in support of upcoming Marriage Equality legislation

  • Walk for Peace (sponsored every September by the Center for Active Nonviolence and Peacemaking)

  • Pride Picnic

  • soup suppers geared to help feed elderly in our area

  • cleanup of Mississippi River and adjacent drainage creeks

  • veggie gardening for Northend Outreach Ministry’s weekly school lunch program

  • signs highlighting our UU values, to encourage voting in 2020

  • CROP Walk

  • anti-racism work with area groups (This is our current focus)

In addition to active participation in Social Justice work, we also support several like-minded non-profit organizations:

 

Iowa Interfaith Power and Light (IIPL)

Iowa Environmental Council (IEC)

UU Service Committee (UUSC)

Iowa UU Witness Advocacy Network (IIUWAN)

UU Ministry for Earth (UUMFE)
