Whether you tweet, organize, or lobby—or do all three and more—the ongoing attacks on reproductive justice call for progressive people of faith to speak up for choice, dignity, and religious liberty.
In Your Congregation
Bring your congregation through a thorough introduction to the topics of reproductive justice with the Curriculum for Congregations from the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA). Organized on theological principles, this six-week curriculum will help prepare congregations and other groups to meaningfully participate in public conversations on these topics and be effective advocates.
Especially for congregations that have completed the Curriculum, Moving Forward: In-Depth Resources on Reproductive Justice contain lots of materials and ideas to deepen your congregation’s advocacy along the five priority issues of the UUA’s reproductive justice work.
For congregations that are just beginning their reproductive justice journey, get a liturgical calendar, a sample worship, sermon examples and resources, a faith development guide, and much more with the Congregational Resource Packet.
Take a look at the UUA's webinars on reproductive justice: What is Reproductive Justice? and Congregational and Legislative Best Practices. Both are available online.

- Grassroots Organizing, and
