The mission of the Common Good committee is to show how individuals can help to solve social and environmental justice problems at the source. We work closely with UU Justice Florida (www.uujusticefl.org), the UU Service Committee, and interfaith and secular partners for public policy and social change. By taking actions together, we empower the voice of our Unitarian Universalist values in the public arena and make a difference on critical issues such as escalating inequality, climate change, and justice for all.
We are trying to solve problems at the source so they don’t keep happening again.
You can participate as you have time in actions for systemic change even as you focus on hands-on help in the community. Here are some of the actions we can take together:
- Civic engagement and public witness: events, rallies, and contacts with local, state and federal officials
- Coordinated communication: letter-writing, petition-signing, blogging, social media outreach
- Education: forums, worship services, films
- Voter participation: encouraging voter registration, voter education, voter involvement, and opposing voter suppression.
Please sign up on the Common Good/UU Justice Florida list at the Social Justice table in the lanai for alerts on timely actions we can take. Together we can make a difference!
