Our Partners In Social Justice
UU Marin cannot perform our social and environmental justice work alone! We partner with national, local, and fellow Unitarian Universalist organizations, including:
Homeward Bound of Marin is the primary provider of Marin County homeless shelters and services for homeless families and individuals in Marin, California.
Marin Interfaith Council (MIC), is a respectful collaborative that celebrates faith traditions, advocates justice and builds community. MIC cultivates a community diverse in belief, opinion, and culture to make Marin a more vibrant and equitable community. Our work in the religious, nonprofit, and public spheres aims to make Marin a national model of inclusive community. When we celebrate each other, embracing our profound differences, real change happens. Contact Linda Haumann for more information.
MOC is a broad-based network of local institutions–faith-based, non-profit, educational, labor, and civic organizations–that come together to develop leaders, identify shared issues affecting our community and take action around these issues. Current issues being addressed include advocacy for affordable housing, concerns of aging and disability, youth mental health and renter’s protection.
Marin Promise Partnership was formed so that every child, regardless of race, ethnicity or family income can reach their full educational potential. It is a county-wide cross-sector to address Marin county’s persistent and systemic educational inequities. Contact Linda Haumann for more information.
SURJ is a national network of groups and individuals working to undermine white supremacy and to work toward racial justice. Through community organizing, mobilizing, and education, SURJ moves white people to act as part of a multi-racial majority for justice with passion and accountability.
Founded in 2018, the THL is a comfortable and safe haven for people recovering from gender confirmation surgery. In conjunction with the Spahr Center, caring, nurturing and respectful support services are also provided. Members of UU Marin prepare a week of meals every eight weeks for the guests and their caregivers. Contact Joan Smith for more information.
The Unitarian Universalist Justice Ministry of California advances justice in our state by cultivating and connecting leaders and communities, and by empowering the public voice of those who share UU values and principles.
UUSC advances human rights through grassroots collaboration. In more than a dozen countries throughout the world, UUSC fosters social justice and works toward a world free from oppression. Our innovative approach and measurable impact — in promoting economic justice, bolstering environmental justice, and protecting rights at risk — are grounded in the belief that all people have inherent power, dignity, and rights.
