UU FaithAction NJ coordinates grassroots social justice advocacy with our member congregations and individual UUs and allies across the state of New Jersey. We work to establish a just and compassionate public policy that is consistent with Unitarian Universalist principles and purposes:

      Upholding the worth and dignity of every person;
      Furthering justice, equity, and compassion in human relations;
      Ensuring the use of the democratic process;
      Protecting religious freedom;
      Promoting respect for the interdependent web of all existence

Unitarian Universalists are proud of a 218 year history of combining hands-on work for justice with the free search for truth and meaning including groundbreaking work for the abolition of slavery, equal rights for women and lgbtq people, civil liberties and the 20th century civil rights movement. We feel that working for social justice and the elimination of all forms of oppression is an essential part of our individual and collective spiritual journeys. UU FaithAction puts this into practice by pressing our legislators for change through letter writing campaigns, providing testimony at the Statehouse in Trenton, via grassroots lobbying and public rallies and witness alongside our many coalition partners.

So that our efforts can have the greatest possible impact, UU FaithAction limits its focus to the following issues critical in New Jersey today:

  • Economic Justice
  • Environmental Justice
  • Reproductive Justice
  • Immigration Reform
  • Gun Violence Prevention
  • Criminal Justice Reform

A deep commitment to Racial Justice and antiracism training runs through all of our 6 issues areas. We are intersectional in our approach and our theologies.
