Advocates For Social Justice

Our mission is to apply Unitarian Universalist principles to actions that create positive changes in the local community and the larger world.

Commitment to social justice is one of our deeply held principles. The Advocates for Social Justice connects the concerns of our congregation to the larger community and educates our members about important issues — locally, nationally, and globally. We coordinate the overall justice-making activities of the congregation, using the Unitarian Universalist (UU) Principles as our guide to action. We host talks on emergent issues. We also support the UU Service Committee, UUs for a Just Economic Community and additional programs and projects adopted by the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA).

Social justice work at UUCSR encompasses many groups, each with individual target goals. The umbrella group is called Advocates for Social Justice. Affiliated teams include the Adrienne Swenson Award team, the Climate Action Group, the Diversity Project, the Film Project, Share the Offering, Borders & Beyond, the North Bay Organizing Project, and Saturday Breakfast for our Neighbors

Additional Programs and Projects 

In addition to the focused activities above, the Advocates for Social Justice:

Adrienne Swenson Scholarship

In memory and honor of Adrienne Swenson, a long-time UUCSR member who was a tireless and dedicated social and environmental justice worker, each year  a scholarship is awarded to a local senior high student who has demonstrated a passion for social justice in their communities.
