Home About Us Social Action
Social Action Print

Social action is a major component of life at LCUUC. The Social Action Committee offers LCUUC members and friends opportunities to apply their UU principles and beliefs in the larger community through education, direct service, advocacy for systemic change, and strategic distribution of our resources. We seek to cooperate and collaborate with other Unitarian Universalist and social justice organizations (faith-based and secular) in working together to promote peace, justice, and sustainability in our local and global communities.

Social action is the lifeblood of our congregation. It nourishes us spiritually and enriches our community. We are committed to making a difference in our communities and in our world – to work to help our neighbors, to protect our environment (Green Sanctuary), and for peace and justice.
