The Social Action Committee plans social justice programs, including offering educational forums and speakers, advocacy, raising money through First Sunday Plate Collections, and providing volunteer opportunities. We also serve as a link to the UU Service Committee.
Our Social Action work is an expression of our Unitarian Universalist principles in action. We effectively address social justice issues at local, regional and global levels, raising awareness within the UUFCC community and inviting participation of all those who are able.
Come and Inspire Us
If there is a critical issue you feel strongly about, this is the place where you can get the support and encouragement to put your passion into action.
