JUSTICE CORNER: Where Our Community Presence Works
STRIVING FORWARD AS A BELOVED COMMUNITY
As part of our UUFB mission we pledge to go forth as “activists for social justice”. Some of that work is accomplished by our financial contributions to causes that promote our UUFB values. Every year the SEJ committee has the privilege of distributing our donations as we accomplish this goal. SEJ uses our “SEJ giving guidelines” to help make our recommendations. The SEJ guidelines suggest about 80% of funds go to local organizations where UUFB members make significant volunteer contributions, 10% of funds go to national or international organizations and 10% go for educational programs at UUFB – or organizations that promote education of issues that concern us. You can find a breakdown of 2019's contributions at this link, using the password to the members-only section of our web site.
All UUFB members are members of SEJ and are welcome to attend our monthly meetings. Please let us know if you would like more information about these donations. Thank you to all of you for your generosity and please know your contributions do make a difference.
… the Intersection of JUST and US
Justice Corner is brought to you by the Social and Environmental Justice Committee.
