The Social Action Council (SAC) is one of the standing committees of the Fellowship. The committee was redesigned as a voting council empowered to shape a social justice ministry that reflects the guiding principles of Unitarian Universalism. To accomplish this, the council supports, educates, and guides the congregation toward projects and statements of justice in the larger community.
Some of the projects SAC has engaged the Fellowship to undertake include:
- Petree Elementary School - partnership and support, providing volunteers and donations
- Habitat for Humanity green build - environmentally friendly building
- Community Clothes Closet - collecting and disseminating used clothing to the needy
- Green Street Shalom Project Welcome Table - community meal
- C.H.A.N.G.E. - local interfaith and multicultural community organizing group
The Social Action Council meets on the second Sunday of every month at 12:15pm in the Library.
All are welcome to attend the meeting.
Volunteer Skills Needed:
SAC needs passionate members who are willing to be in action concerning injustice and inequity in our community. In general, desirable skills might include:
- team work
- creative problem solving
- open mindedness
The Social Action Council encourages congregants to suggest and conceive of their own local projects and actions. The Council will support and assist individual actions whenever possible, but congregants are empowered to undertake actions as they see fit. Individual actions, however, cannot be undertaken in the name of the Fellowship. The Social Action Council may implement and/or coordinate social justice action that engages the entire Fellowship, but only with approval of the Board of Trustees. If you have an idea, feel free to contact SAC to discuss.
