Social Action Purpose Statement
The purpose of the UUCLC Social Action Committee is three-fold:
- To provide awareness and education about social issues related to promoting the values and principles of the Unitarian Universalist faith;
- To provide opportunities to the members and friends of the UUCLC to engage in those activities that promote these values and principles; and
- To demonstrate these values and principles to the wider world, especially in our local community of Las Cruces.
We envision a local community and world free from oppression and injustice, where all can realize their full human rights. Our local actions are connected to study/action issues of the national UUA Commission on Social Witness.
Mission of the UUA Commission on Social Witness
The mission of the Commission on Social Witness is to help Unitarian Universalists put our [UUA] Principles and Purposes into action, and to assist congregations and the Association express concern for social justice through the study, articulation, and action taken relative to current social justice issues identified by the congregations across the country.
