The First UU Church Social Justice Committee is involved in a variety of
efforts, including ...
Supporting Local Non-Profit Organizations
On the third Sunday of each month, our offering goes to support a local non-
profit organization. This year we are focusing on organizations supporting
democracy and the electoral process. This effort raises over $2,500 annually.
Addressing Homelessness and Hunger
We are working closely with other faith communities in organizing Family
Promise of San Joaquin (http://familypromisesjc.org/). This organization will
proactively address homelessness in our local community through providing
comprehensive services to families at risk. We also coordinate food and
clothing drives to support local agencies supporting families facing food
insecurity and poverty.
We are leaders in promoting a healthy, sustainable and equitable community.
Each year we host a water-wise plant sale with plantings from our own
gardens along with free information re: water conservation. On the third
Saturday of September each year we also participate in Coastal Cleanup Day,
cleaning up our own Calaveras River. We also maintain an “Adopt-a-Road”
crew that provides ongoing clean-up on a county road.
Advocating for Peace and Justice
We coordinate and participate in a variety of community efforts to promote peace and justice, including community forums, petition drives, and demonstrations. We maintain a "Quick Response Team"; - dedicated members and friends who respond to issues and community concerns quickly through advocacy and action. Each year we also participate in the Peaceful Holiday Fair, sponsored by the Peace and Justice Network of San Joaquin County (https://pjnsjc.org/).
