Click on Join & wait to be added.  Start reading from posts by Paula and others.  She is exploring and learning and planning and feeding us some thought provoking ideas with her posts.  She is a morning poster so it could get to be a new "coffee & Paula" habit that could change you!  There is always something new.    (She will want you to know that she is speaking her own mind and does not speak for the Society!)


Social Action Committee

Social Action is our UUSRF standing committee, active in response to long-standing Unitarian Universalist commitments to social justice, as well as to issues that arise in the world around us. Our work is often related to Unitarian Universalist principles and supportive of campaigns and study topics initiated by the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA, the national association to which this Fellowship belongs). On the local level we provide financial support to such important services as food pantries, homeless shelters, free clinics, a community arts base, and Turningpoint women's shelter. In addition, we create programs for this UUSRF, including an annual memorial service honoring a member couple who worked for justice and left us a legacy of courageous advocacy.


Social Justice in Action at UUSRF

Our UUSRF Justice page will be an active page addressing a full range of justice issues of concern to our members and friends. We will address local, regional, national and international issues. You are invited to participate in the development of the page by submitting comments and ideas for future content and helping keep this page up to date. To join the action, please e-mail the page editor at  UUSRFJustice@gmail.com.  As a example of what our page can become, please visit UUSJ.net . Their page is rich and simple. Their vision and mission is quoted below.

The UUSJ.net provides a model of Unitarian Universalists working for Social Justice.

Vision: "We envision a vibrant regional community of Unitarian Universalists working together to create a peaceful, just, and sustainable world - for ourselves and for the generations to follow." 

Mission: "Our mission is to mobilize and amplify the voice of Unitarian Universalists in the National Capital Region (NCR) as we seek to change the world through acts of love and justice."
