The UUCPA Action Council
Are you interested in putting your principles to work?
The Action Council seeks to connect people to meaningful justice work. We can connect you with current UUCPA Task Forces which are taking action on specific issues. We can help you launch a new Task Force.

The Action Council Philosophy
The Action Council seeks to facilitate:
- Action for justice and change, addressing root causes as well as service to those in need.
- A combination of advocacy, witness/direct action, community organizing, education, and service.
- A grassroots model, in which not just a handful of core activists, but almost every member of the congregation, participates in justice work.
- Reflection on the imperatives of our faith and a watering of the spiritual roots of our social and environmental action.
- Connections between our congregation and community organizations.
