We have a legacy of “deeds not creeds.” Our work for a better world calls us to unexpected places as we harness love’s power to stop oppression. 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 congregationally-driven social justice statements and 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.
At 1stUUPB, our local projects, activities, and partnerships are coordinated by our Justice Ministry Team consisting of nineteen members of 1stUUPB. The team meets the third Sunday of each month at Noon by e-mail. All are welcome. Let Barbara Hatzfeld know of your interest and you will be added to the list.
