Justice Work

As UUs we do a lot in the world because action is our form of prayer. We are each compelled by the call of our higher self to get involved in different ways to make the world better. Over the years we have walked and supported walkers in the Walk For Hunger, we have supported Family Promise with regard to homelessness, we fed community members at Open Table, and made meals with MCC. We have faced racism through book groups and the Black Lives Matter March, we have called out for justice at the Women’s March and at climate change rallies on the First Parish lawn, we have bought and wrapped gifts for Secret Santa, and we have stood with our Jewish and Muslim sisters and brothers as they have faced violence.

Some of our recent justice work includes:

Share the Plate for Domestic Violence Services Network, Sudbury Community Food Pantry, Metrowest Free Medical Program

Warm Clothing Collection for Haitian Refugees

Trunk-or-Treat for Sudbury Community Food Pantry
