Economic Justice Action Group

Following the WTO in Seattle last year about a dozen of us who had attended the demonstrations and were members of the First Unitarian Church began meeting on a weekly basis. We were determined to continue to educate ourselves as well as others on the threats of economic globalization. Since then we have had a busy and productive year. Among other things we have sponsored a six week study forum, continuously place economic justice informational pieces in the Sunday bulletins, and put together a 32 page book on Democracy vs. the WTO. After successfully initiating and helping to pass a resolution on the Campaign Financing at the 2000 General Assembly we are now working towards the passage of a Study Action Item on Economic Globalization at the 2001 General Assembly.
