The UU Justice Ministry of California is laying the groundwork for an intentional 2022, filled with new ways to connect justice leaders, critical resources for congregations, and invaluable training for our youth, UUs, and those aligned in principle.
As we begin to look back on 2021, we are grateful for the relationships and partnerships that we have forged while working tirelessly for a more liberated California.
During our virtual UU Border Trips in collaboration with UURISE & VIA International, we deepened our faith and reaffirmed ourselves as justice leaders. We witnessed the effects of our dysfunctional US immigration policies and learned new ways to support immigration justice work in our community. Learn more.
Like many, we, too, have felt the effects of COVID-19, but we do not stop as JUUstice makers; we take a breath, gather ourselves, and forge forward!
Through our many virtual gatherings, we collaborated, connected, and reflected on why as Unitarian Universalists, we are called to mobilize alongside efforts to dismantle white supremacy culture and reform policing and incarceration systems in our nation.
We were vocal supporters of critical legislation supporting California’s immigrant communities – documented and undocumented – including the movement for #Healthcare4All immigrants, which has now successfully pushed for the inclusion of elder immigrants in Medical regardless of documentation status.
We arefaith-rooted, inspired, challenged, focused, and grateful to have you as our partners.
We invite you to reflect on 2021, particularly on your community- Do you have the resources you need to further justice, equity, and compassion in your community?
As we at The UU Justice Ministry of California reflect on our efforts to cultivate, create and connect leaders and communities in California, we reimagine the meaning of community. We Reimagine CommUUnity through a lens of purpose, connection, intention, justice, equality, equity, and love.
Let’s #ReimagineCommUUnity together!
