UUA Initiatives

chalice_file378_10015“The prophetic liberal church is the church in which all members share the common responsibility to foresee the consequences of human behavior (both individual and institutional), with the intention of making history in place of being merely pushed around by it”. —James Luther Adams, “Taking Time Seriously,” in The Prophethood of All Believers.

The Unitarian Universalist Association has a long history of social justice action.  We draw from a wealth of religious forebears whose lives continue to inspire us to make history instead of being pushed around by it.  Every year at our General Assembly, our congregational delegates vote to study, reflect  and on take action in response to a pressing social justice issues  (see www.uua.org/justice).  Issues include immigration justice, reproductive justice, racial justice, environmental justice, and Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer Equality.

The UUA created a newly formed UU College of Social Justice with Service programs for all ages located in national and international places of need. (www.uucsj.org).
