Social Justice

What is Social Justice?

Justice is at the core of our faith. Our congregation is called to make a positive difference in our wider communities. We work to serve, to raise awareness, and to support and partner with people who face injustice. We advocate, organize, and act for justice to live out the values of our faith. We ACT our VALUES.

Some ways you can support the social justice goals of MVUUC are:

  • Letter Writing 3rd Sunday

    Seize the opportunity to join in letter writing on the patio after church every third Sunday. All materials including information are provided, but you are welcome to bring your own ideas and issues to write about. Previously written letters are getting great responses from legislators. Hand written letters carry a lot of weight so let’s keep this up! Thanks to Teresia Santee for coordinating this important opportunity.
