Weaving Social Justice

Mission Statement

We, the members of the Weaving Social Justice team, are dedicated to fighting institutional racism, both in the congregation and the wider community.
We will work within the congregation on issues that intersect with institutional racism.
We will also sponsor events promoting justice with the congregation and with other groups in the community at large.
By so doing, we seek to put into practice our Unitarian Universalist principles.

Weaving Social Justice is a committee dedicated to promoting social justice and anti-racism through activities both within our congregation and in the wider community. We hold public educational forums, and organize and participate in advocacy and direct action in support of civil rights and human rights, in all their manifestations.  We make ties with the wider community. On the third Sunday in June we organize a yearly Juneteenth religious service followed by a street picnic to commemorate the date when the last slaves in the United States found out they had been freed.

Through these events and actions we seek to put into practice our Unitarian principles, especially the covenant “to affirm and promote the inherent worth and dignity of every person.”  We meet at 7:00 pm on the second Tuesday of the month from September through May. We recommend that you check the weekly e-mail to confirm meeting times and dates. Our meetings are open to all members and friends of the congregation.
