Social Action and Justice is an integral part of Unitarian Universalism and the mission of the Unitarian Church of Evanston. Our efforts to make the world more whole are concentrated in four areas:
- Peace and Justice – local and global advocacy for peace
- Rainbow Alliance – gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender equality
- Green Sanctuary – environmental stewardship
- Food and Shelter Team – alleviating homelessness and hunger
The work of these committees is coordinated through our Social Action Council, which is integrated with our Board of Trustees and Religious Education Board. The council also decides on the organizations we share our Sunday loose plate collections with. For a current list of this years shared offering recipients click here.
For more information on volunteering go to our volunteer opportunity sign ups or the volunteer calendar.
For information on dedicated funds of UCE that are related to Social Action and how they can be utilized, please review the Administration and Procedures of Dedicated Funds Related to Social Action, which includes a printable form to complete.
SUPPORT FAIR TRADE AND SUPPORT FAMILIES IN NEED IN EVANSTON
Want to buy good organic foods and beautiful hand made products from around the world?
The Fair Trade Cart (next to the Book H) offers fairly traded coffees, teas, chocolates and other products every Sunday. All our proceeds help families right here in Evanston, and fair trade ensures a living wage to those who make what we sell.
