SOCIAL ACTION

Throughout Unitarian and Universalist history, women and men have shown great courage and taken huge personal risks on behalf of their visions of a more just and equitable society. Famous Unitarians and Universalists such as suffragist Susan B. Anthony, civil rights leader Whitney Young, diplomat Adlai Stevenson, or American Red Cross founder Clara Barton, are far outnumbered by the literally hundreds and thousands of Unitarian Universalists (UUs) who have spent decades laboring for justice in their own communities.

This tradition has had a lasting impact on Unitarian Universalism. Social justice work is incorporated into our eight Unitarian Universalist Principles, which all member congregations affirm and promote. These Principles are also a part of the UUA Bylaws, which govern the work of our Association.

MVUUC has been and continues to be involved in a variety of Social Action projects.  

 

These include working to pass and uphold anti-discrimination ordinances in Bowling Green.

 

Our continuing Social Action activities include:

  • Hosting an American Red Cross Blood Drive four times a year;

  • Ongoing collection of food items for The Brown Bag Food Project;

  • Cleaning a mile the Slippery Elm Trail several times a year;

  • Supporting the UUA Stand With Love Campaign;

  • Community Garden project

  • Toledo Pride Parade

  • Anti-Racism Reading Group

  • Collection drives to support community organizations.
