Unitarian Universalists are known as a constant presence at social justice events. If our children are to carry on our faith tradition of working for justice, we must invite them into discernment, action, and reflection with us. We need to engage them in discovering why our faith calls us to keep showing up.

These pages will help you affirm and enjoy faith-based action with the children in your care while you deepen your own connection with the religious values that ground your social justice work.

Race, Class, & Other Complexities

Injustice and prejudice can be challenging to confront. Parents who accompany their children's quest for answers grow as justice-makers alongside them.

Doing service, engaging empathy

Doing a service project together will expand your child's world view and engage their hearts, heads, and hands for justice.

Staying Safe at Demonstrations

You know civic engagement from an early age is vital, but you're concerned about your children's safety.

Nurturing Your Child's Conscience

Help your child build a lifelong friendship with their conscience.

Using the Language of Values

Our Unitarian Universalist Principles are roots and wings for our justice work.

Breaking the Rules for Justice

Kids' safety often depends on following rules, but justice-making needs questioning spirits and, sometimes, disobedience.
