Our denomination has a long history of supporting Social Justice causes such as hunger and homelessness, civil and human rights, caring for the environment, welcoming the stranger and speaking truth to power.
Our Social Justice program is guided by our Unitarian Universalist principles. We seek to work for justice for the vulnerable in our community in areas such as housing/homelessness, immigration/racial justice, and environmental justice.
As part of our work with the Marin Interfaith Council, we are also involved in the Sanctuary Congregations Network. In 2018, our congregation voted to become a Sanctuary Congregation and to provide accompaniment, advocacy, and networking to our undocumented immigrants.
At the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Marin, we have a variety of ways members and non-members can be involved in creating more social justice in our own local communities and in the larger world. Anyone is welcome and encouraged to attend our committee meetings the third Sunday of the month at 12:00 PM in Fellowship Hall. Bring your enthusiasm and your ideas!
Our current areas of focus:
- Homelessness in Marin County
- Affordable Housing in Marin County
- Immigration Rights
- Environmental Issues
See more about each of these under Service Projects.
We currently partner with a variety of other organizations. See our Partners page for more information. In this way, we can be effective with other faith communities to co-create real change.
