New in 2020 – Online Connections!
As we continue to navigate the challenges & opportunities that comes with our predominantly virtual forms of community, finding sustainable and accessible ways to connect is crucial to putting our faith in action.
And even when we cannot be in physical community together, we know that our work for justice is stronger when we combine our efforts, share our resources, support one another’s burdens, and celebrate one another’s victories in move the moral arc of the universe with love.
Launching September 1: California JUUstice Community Forum
Get connected with UUs and UU-aligned justice makers in California who are working to manifest justice! UUJMCA is excited to introduce a new California JUUstice Community Forum, where justice makers can join online spaces to share updates, resources, & events, as well as ask questions of others working on similar justice issues. Find new collaborators, share opportunities for action and education, and create justice together in California.

Statewide Issue Collective Calls
Want to get connected with other Unitarian Universalists in the state working on similar justice issues? Looking for strategies, resources, events, or partners to help move your justice ministry and work forward? Want to share an important update with others you know want to take action?
Starting this Fall, UUJMCA will be hosting spaces for regular “Issue Collectives,” where UU justice makers working on similar issues can meet & communicate with each other. These spaces will exist in three forms: 1) UUJMCA’s Online Community Forum, 2) Email Groups, and 3) Community-led Monthly Calls.
The first of these Issue Collective Calls will happen during our Online Turning the Tides summit, August 24-30, during the following times:
- Economic Justice Statewide Collective Call
- Immigration Justice Statewide Collective Call (with UUJMCA’s Immigrant Justice Action Team)
- Environmental & Climate Justice Statewide Collective Call
- Criminal Justice Reform & Prison Abolition Statewide Collective Call
- Democracy & Voting Rights Statewide Collective Call (part of our monthly “UU the Vote” statewide calls)
Regional Cluster Calls
In the age of virtual & online organizing, we have a great opportunity to connect with our sibling UUs to collaborate on shared forms of justice-making. Whether it’s inviting one another to programs, coordinating on county or statewide efforts, or sharing resources & partnership connections, our organizing for justice no longer can or needs to stay within our congregational walls.
On Saturday, August 29, UUJMCA will be hosting a series of introductory cluster calls during “Turning the Tides,” where attendees can connect with others in their greater region, and potentially break out into smaller groups should numbers allow. Future calls will be scheduled & held based on expressed interest – email firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know you want to be part of upcoming cluster calls, and if you’d be interested in being an occasional co-facilitator for your region/cluster!
