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 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:
- Identifying and alleviating the root causes and effects of racial injustice.
- Proposing strategies to identify and coordinate initiatives that seek to alleviate the root causes of racial discrimination.
- Addressing the effects of the aforementioned causes through direct congregational and expanded partnership engagement.
- Increasing diversity at UUCF.
The RJSC is composed of about a dozen members, including both UUCF minister and the intern minister, meets monthly and welcomes new members committed to this mission. Please contact one of the committee leaders: Kaye Cook, Mary Frances Kordick or Milver Valenzuela.
Second Principle Project
The Racial Justice Steering Committee has created the UUCF Second Principle Project to help UUCF live our commitment to the Unitarian Universalist Second Principle by affirming and promoting justice, equity and compassion in human relations between all people. Read more here.
