Social action and justice issues are important to our church. Our Social Justice Committee (SJC) identifies four focus projects a year. The committee meets monthly. Open meetings are held every three months. SAJ advises the congregation about important local, national, and international justice issues during open meetings.

Social Justice Purpose

The Social Justice Committee has three goals:

  1. Provide awareness and education about social issues that promote the values and principles of the Unitarian Universalist faith;
  2. Provide opportunities to the members and friends of the church to engage in activities that promote Unitarian Universalist values and principles; and
  3. Demonstrate these values and principles to the wider world, especially in our local community of Las Cruces.

Unitarian Universalists work toward a local community and world free from oppression and injustice, where all can realize their full human rights. Toward those ends, our church works on local and national actions identified by the Unitarian Universalist Commission on Social Witness.

UUA Commission on Social Witness

The Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) Commission on Social Witness helps Unitarian Universalists put their mission, vision, and principles into action. It assists churches to express concern for social justice through study, writings, and actions that address current social justice issues.
