Social Justice Update

The Social Action Committee of Shoreline Unitarian Universalist Society meets the first Thursday of the month at 9:30am in the SUUS library 

A commitment to social action is a natural extension of our Unitarian Universalist principles; and the Shoreline UU Mission explicitly calls for us to promote social, economic and environmental justice. We encourage members, youth and children to learn about and become actively involved with justice issues, ensuring that our actions as a congregation are socially responsible, and identifying ways to be of service in the world, particularly in our local community.

The Social Action Committee is sponsoring a Congregational Read.  Copies of "The Collapse of Western Civilations: A view from the Future", by Naomi Oreskes & Erik Conway, are available from Yann vanHeurck on Sundays.  SAC is offering a discussion on this short but provocative tale of a future world devastated by climate change, on January 25th from 12:30-2pm.

We continue our relationship with Hawkwing, the Native American Federal based non-profit and the South Dakota Lakota Cheyenne River Indian Reservation, with a grant writing workshop led by Hawkwing founder, Rochelle Ripley.  This two-hour workshop will take place on Saturday, January 31

“When people come together to work on social justice projects, they break the bonds of individualism and isolation that fragment communities... Together they explore the issues that tear at their hearts, and cause them concern for the future... Together, they partner with others to understand their place in the community, the gifts they bring to the community, and the hopes and dreams of others. Too many people think that spirituality and social justice are at opposite ends of the continuum, even polarized from one another. In truth, neither can be fulfilled without the other.” Rev. Jeanne Lloyd
