Faith In Action: Advocating for Children

Preparation for Activity

  • Explore what advocacy and service projects your congregation already supports that directly benefit the children in your community.
  • Review the website of Promise the Children for news and a current list of initiatives that directly benefit children at a national or state level.
  • Review the UNICEF website and the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee (UUSC) website to find ways to advocate for and support children in the United States and in other parts of the world.

Description of Activity

Work with your congregation's social justice committee, religious education committee or another appropriate group to plan a multigenerational project that supports or advocates for children in your community, the nation, or the world, rather than sacrificing children to hunger, violence, and instability. Publicize and carry out your project, inviting people of all ages in the congregation to join your efforts.
