Our church community has a passion promoting economic justice, human rights, and caring for the earth.  Consistent with the inclusive values of Unitarian Universalism, we partner with the broader community to address the crucial justice issues of our day. We recognize the imperative to go beyond talk and commit to acting on our words. 

What is Social Justice?

Justice at SFUU is harnessing love’s power to stop oppression and build beloved community. We put our faith into action through grassroots organizing as well as interfaith, state, and national advocacy, balancing community service with creating systemic change in order to create a better world. We believe the six key parts of a well-rounded Social Justice program are Education, Witness, Advocacy, Service, Community Organizing, and Leadership Development.

What We Do

The Social Justice Committee at SFUU works to keep our congregants informed on the local and global social justice issues of our time.  From there we act to build leadership and facilitate actions that help overcome those problems through the following:
