Nominations Open for 2020-21 Justice Partners

Each month the Church supports a social justice organization by donating one Sunday’s plate collection to the organization.  The Action Council will review the current and proposed recipients and present a slate for 2020-21 at the Annual Meeting on April 19, 2020 for a congregational vote. If you would like to nominate an organization to support or voice your support for a currently supported organization, please email or call one of us, before Sat, Feb 29.

Factors that are given priority in creating the slate of organizations are:

  • UUCPA congregants actively involved with the group;
  • A preference for local groups;
  • Who they serve and what they do;
  • What is their funding base and will our donation have an impact;
  • A balance of causes among different issues, such as poverty, environment, etc.

For nominations of new organizations, please provide information to help the Action Council with our decision, including:

  • Organization name and location;
  • Organization website;
  • Who they serve and what they do;
  • Your relationship with the group.
