Unitarian Universalists for a Just Economic Community

1200 UUs have created a grassroots organization to foster systemic change and to encourage UUs and UU congregations to work for economic justice. Our vision is of building small democratic communities of action, reflection, solidarity and resistance moving toward global economic justice and sustainability. We foster that vision with: adult and youth RE curricula; creative cutting edge General Assembly programs; CALL Newsletter; monthly emails; dynamic website; workshops at district meetings; regional chapters; advocacy training; an annual Cross Border Trip to Mexico. Priority areas of concern are (1) Corporate Economic Globalization with a campaign focusing on Big Box Retailers (2) Developing a model for Economic Justice Congregations (3) Media reform by addressing the corporate conglomerates' control of the media and access to critical information.
