Congregational Advocacy & Witness
Mission of the Office for Congregational Advocacy and Witness
The Office for Congregational Advocacy and Witness staff assist congregations with working in interfaith coalitions, joining and developing legislative and grassroots advocacy campaigns, working with local media, and other resources and initiatives that move their work for social justice into the larger community. The Office provides staff liaison for the Unitarian Universalist Association’s (UUA’s) Commission on Social Witness, Socially Responsible Investing initiative and to Unitarian Universalist (UU) social justice affiliate groups.
The Office also manages the Social Justice Empowerment Program. The basic purpose of a Social Justice Empowerment Workshop is for members of a congregation to assess the quality of their social justice program and to make strategic decisions about new directions and focus. During the workshop participants reflect upon what they can do as a religious community to put their faith into action.
There is no Staff Group for the name given.
This work is made possible by the generosity of individual donors and congregations. Please consider making a donation today.
