Justice Partner Nominations Open

Each month the Church supports a social justice or service organization by donating 10% of non-pledge offerings at the Sunday services.  Action Council will review the recipients and present a slate for 2017-18 at the Annual Meeting on April 23 for a congregational vote. If you would like to make a suggestion for an organization to support, or voice your support for a currently supported organization, please email actioncouncil@uucpa.org or call one of us, before Sunday, March 5.

Among the factors considered are:

  • Our relationship with the group;
  • Who they serve and what they do;
  • What is their funding base;
  • Balance among social service, direct action, education, community organizing and advocacy causes.

Please include information that will help the Action Council with our decision, including:

  • Organization name and location;
  • Who they serve and what they do;
  • Size (in terms of membership if applicable and budget);
  • Their major source of funds;
  • Your relationship with the group.

  • Adolescent Counseling Services On-campus counseling
