As Unitarian Universalists dedicated to upholding our Seven Principles, UUCF is committed to exploration, learning and transformation around racial justice. The congregation lives this commitment through the work of its Racial Justice Steering Committee (RJSC).
Racial Justice Steering Committee
The Racial Justice Steering Committee is a subgroup of the Social Justice Council. Through long-term education, service, advocacy and witness, the RJSC is dedicated to the following mission:
- Understanding the root causes and effects of racism.
- Working to dismantle racism through individual and congregational actions.
- Developing partnerships with other institutions working to dismantle racism, particularly institutions led by people of color.
- Increasing the congregation’s diversity.
The RJSC is composed of about a dozen members, including UUCF’s senior minister and intern minister. The group meets monthly and welcomes new members committed to this mission.
