As Unitarian Universalists, Social Justice is an integral element of the way we live our faith out in the world. With this in mind, we, as a congregation, are involved in many causes – from immigrant rights and racial equity, to environmental awareness and community outreach – in various ways. Please visit the Social Justice Council page to learn more about how we are taking a stand for issues that matter to us.
In addition, our denomination as a whole (via the central organization of the Unitarian Universalist Association) takes on specific causes, chosen by the UUA’s member congregations.
Congregational Study/Action Issues (CSAIs) are issues selected by Unitarian Universalist member congregations for four years of study, reflection and action. In the third year of this process, delegates at GA can vote to approve a Statement of Conscience (SOC) resulting from three years of congregational feedback on the CSAI. A fourth year is devoted to implementation.
The 2014-2018 CSAI, chosen in at the General Assembly in 2014 is Escalating Inequality.
The CSAI chosen at the 2016 General Assembly is The Corruption of Our Democracy.
