Social Justice Circle

SJpic1

There are many opportunities available to do good work through UCH. So much of this work is interrelated – animal ministry relates to environmental work, environmental work to racial justice, racial justice to economic justice – and we can be more impactful when we recognize these intersections.

The Social Justice Circle brings together ten teams to ensure that we are coordinated, and to find opportunities for deepening connections.  The Social Justice Circle teams include Animal Ministry, Black Lives Matter, Green Sanctuary,PADS Homeless Shelter, Prison Ministry, Reproductive Choice, and Welcoming Congregation.  These teams work together with the UUANI, DuPage United, and, very soon, YaYA Justice teams in connecting with other faith communities and partners to advance our values. For more detailed information, most teams are listed separately on this website

At the root of our UU faith is that we are all connected;we are more ourselves, the more we connect with others.  So join the work of the Social Justice Circle and see what we can accomplish together! For info, contact socialjustice@hinsdaleunitarian.org.

This Sunday….Voting Pledge, Voter Registration, Mail in Ballot Request,Voter Guide,Sign Up for Women’s March, and Souls to the Polls!

Voting our Values provides UCH with meaningful and concrete opportunities to exercise the Fifth Principle of Unitarian Universalism – “the right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large.”  Our goal is to have 100% of UCH voters vote in this Midterm election as a part of the UUANI statewide campaign.

Sarah Joyner and Julia Beckman will be staffing the UCH Voting our Values table in the Alice Warren Room.   You can sign up online to register to vote  or request a mail in ballot. Julia will be there as a registrar and can register you to vote on the spot. You can also make your pledge to vote!

This week, they’ll have access to the League of Women Voter Guide information. Plus, important dates for both Cook and DuPage counties will be posted.

Any questions? Want to get involved? Contact socialjustice@hinsdaleunitarian.org.
