Florida UUs participate in “Witnessing Together for Farmworker Justice” with the Coalition of Immokalee Workers

We work for justice, equity, and compassion in our relationships and systemic change in our society. We know that the escalation of economic inequality undergirds a thousand injustices, from climate change to homelessness, from mass incarceration to low-wage worker exploitation. Economic inequality also disproportionately impacts people of color. A better world is possible, and we strive to be part of the solution.  

What We Are Doing

  • Escalating Inequality Study and Action
    In 2014 Unitarian Universalists (UUs) across the country committed to engage with the escalation of economic inequality as a moral issue. From 2014–2018 and beyond, we are learning, discussing, and taking action on this topic on personal, congregational, community, and global levels.
  • Raising the Minimum Wage
    The minimum wage in the United States was originally intended to be a living wage, yet it’s been decades since it was. We view raising the minimum wage to a living wage as a moral imperative and are working on local, state, and national levels to do so, through campaigns such as Fight for $15 and more.
  • Socially Responsible Investing
    It’s a moral imperative for us that where we put our money is aligned with our values. We have been strongly committed to socially responsible investing for over forty years, from shareholder resolutions, to community investing, to affordable housing and other justice initiatives. 
  • UU Class Conversations
    Conversations about class and classism are vital to healthy faith communities. The organization Unitarian Universalist Class Conversations works to provide our movement with new spiritual tools to explore class and classism and create welcoming and inclusive congregations for people of all class backgrounds.

Worship, Learn, and Live Your Faith





Effective justice ministry depends on partnership. UU partners for economic justice work, beyond the Unitarian Universalist Association, include UU state advocacy networks, the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee, the UU College of Social JusticeUU Class Conversations, and UUs for a Just Economic Community. UUs also form interfaith partnerships, such as with Congregation-Based Community Organizations and Interfaith Worker Justice.
