Social justice is at the heart of EUUC’s identity.

When you pledge to the Social Justice Fund, you support essential programs at EUUC, in our region, and beyond — for example, issues related to our congregational stands, EUUC car camp, Neighbors in Need cold weather shelter, Everett Interfaith Shelter, local high-poverty elementary schools, and organizations promoting gender equality.

This year over $28,000 has been pledged to the Social Justice Fund!  Social Justice pledge funds are distributed by the Social Justice Council and deployed by our social justice committees: Community Engagement, Peace & Justice, Racial Justice, Advocates for Women and Sunday Offering. They use these funds to educate, amplify our hands-on work, and donate to organizations doing work consistent with our UU values.  Your Social Justice Fund pledge also pays for memberships in organizations such as the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee and the Northwest UU Justice Network. Note that the Social Justice Fund does not support our Minister for Faith and Justice or our contributions to the UUA’s Annual Program Fund.

The Social Justice Council oversees the social justice budget.  The Sunday Offering committee is a member of the Council, but Sunday Offering donations are separate from Social Justice Pledge funds, going directly to the month’s cause.

Your generous social justice pledge helps us bring our vision of a just and sustainable world to those outside our doors.  It is our faith in action.
