Social Justice Committee
Emmy Lou Cholak, co-chair (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Barbara Conley, co-chair
The Social Justice Action Committee engages and educates UUCGT members and friends on the what, where, when and why of critical social justice issues and activities. The Committee aims to be a resource to build and grow a dialogic culture at UUCGT and in the community at large, modeling the six sources of the UU tradition.
The goal is to nurture compassionate involvement in social justice in the UUCGT and beyond by:
– Direct social service (direct assistance to those in need)
– Education on social justice issues in light of our religious tradition
– Social witness (making public the convictions of UUCGT on social justice issues)
– Social action (organized efforts to influence policy and decision-makers)
