FIA: Peace & Social Justice - Zoom/Online

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Our church’s program for integrating peace and social justice concerns into the life of the congregation. The Peace & Social Justice Committee (PSJ) focuses many activities in the areas of labor and economic issues; racism, police brutality, and mass incarceration; immigration and immigrant detention; and peace and alternatives to war. It also collaborates with the Green Committee on activities focusing on climate change.

The Faith In Action: Peace & Social Justice Committee (PSJ) puts UU principles of justice, human rights and sustainability into action in our local community and beyond. We organize activities and support campaigns in the areas of labor and economic issues; anti-racism, police reform, and mass incarceration; immigration and immigrant detention; and resisting war. We support and work with community partners such as CLUE (Clergy & Laity United for Economic Justice), OFA (Organizing for Action), the ACLU, and the Sunrise Movement. We also collaborate with the UUSM Green Committee on issues relating to environmental justice and climate change. Everyone is welcome to join us in working to heal our world, and newcomers are encouraged. For more information, contact: justice@uusm.org.

The Peace & Social Justice Committee meets on the 3rd Sunday of every month after second service. New members are welcome and needed. For more information please email Dierdra Deitel. If you do not have email, please stop by the Faith in Action table in Forbes Hall.
