Congregational Stories About Economic & Racial Justice

Working for justice and striving for equality and diversity are at the center of the lives of many individual Unitarian Universalists. As we seek to live lives that are justice-filled and that affirm the inherent worth and dignity of each person, we can gain strength from one another.

In these stories about congregational life, we share what other congregations have done to bring about justice or deepen learning on economic and racial justice.
