How Do I Get Involved?
Our current action teams are: Climate Change, Project College Connection with MCTC, Downtown Congregations to End Homelessness, Raise the Minimum Wage, and Examining Whiteness. We also have many members active in UUs for Justice in the Middle East and with other peace issues. Meetings and activities of our action teams vary. It is also possible to start a new action team!
There are activities every month, ranging from hands-on volunteering to advocating for systemic change. All are welcome to get involved!
Business meetings of the social justice program meet quarterly and are open to anyone who participates in the program. Child care is provided during the meetings upon request.
