Social Justice Steering Committee Seeks New Members

The Social Justice Steering Committee (SJSC) invites UUC members to consider joining our team. We are seeking four new people who would like to work with Rev. Beth and eight others to help nurture justice work at UUC. We ask for a 2- to 3-year commitment, beginning with a retreat in late August or early September. Meetings are monthly and each committee member is also expected to take on some additional responsibilities outside of meeting time.

The SJSC plans monthly gatherings to link UUC members and friends with our social justice initiatives, plans plate collections to benefit the wider community, guides and supports our new and ongoing justice ministries, and works to grow and sustain our partnerships Seeds of Justice grant recipients.  The SJSC responds to justice opportunities and challenges as they emerge and provides UUC and our members with meaningful connections to justice work in the community.

If you might be interested, please email co-chair Sarah Fredrick before May 17, 2017. A committee member will schedule a phone conversation to answer your questions about the work of the committee and expectations of membership. We will not ask for a firm commitment of your interest until after this phone consultation. We hope to hear from anyone who feels this might be a place where your gifts and interests meet!
