“In a time of ever decreasing interconnectedness, UUJMCA is the only UU Social Justice Network in California that connects people using education and programming through our congregations and allies to inspire empathy and collective action through radical inclusivity.”

Our Commitment to You

We are committed to accomplish our justice ministry through education, community organizing, and advocating for justice. All of our justice campaigns are shaped by and rooted in your feedback and viewed through a lens that address Racial Justice, Economic Justice, and Disability Rights . We are here to support YOU, our California UUs in your journey toward justice in your local community. If you are interested in finding out how we can journey  together in any of these areas of justice or if you are looking for support in any other areas of justice,  please let us know!

Intersectionality

While we have identified four specific Justice Campaigns for the coming year, we recognize that no area of justice or work of justice exists in isolation. For example, we see the intersection of Environmental Justice and Economic Justice, acknowledging that those of our community who are in lower income communities are most affected by negative environmental impact.

Additionally, our siblings who are black, indigenous, and people of color are most deeply affected by assaults on Reproductive Rights, Queer (LGBTQ+) Rights, and Immigrant Rights. These are only two areas of intersectionality. As we move forward toward liberating justice for all people and care filled justice for our planet, we will be continuing our work in all these areas of justice with continuous review of areas of intersectionality.
