While we have many members who work out in the community as individuals, we do come together as a church on a few issues that we agree on. We work in coalitions since that’s the most effective way to get things done. We are active members of the Pennsylvania Interfaith Impact Network (PIIN), and the Unitarian Universalist Justice Pennsylvania (UUJusticePA), a state advocacy network.
Recently, the congregation voted to work to end gerrymandering in Pennsylvania. We partnered extensively with Fair Districts PA, and to a lesser extent, March on Harrisburg. We were nearly successful!
We do lots of phone calls, writing letters, postcards and e-mails. We visit legislators’ offices, occasionally protest (two of us have even been arrested!), and hold educational forums. As a religious community, we seek to fulfill our mission by reaching out into the world to affect transformation. Since we are a part of an interdependent web of existence, all deeply connected, we reach beyond the walls of our congregation to address systemic injustice.
We meet (currently via Zoom) on the first Monday of the month at 7 PM.
