The Social Action Justice Team focuses on social justice primarily in our community, but also in the state, nation and world. Our purpose is to integrate services and presentations with action. The Team provides leadership in identifying social justice action initiatives. It makes recommendations on initiatives and action to the leadership of the Universalist Congregation of Lawrence including the executive board and other teams, such as the Program Team. It maintains connections with the social justice initiatives in the UU’s Mid America Region. It also maintains active contacts with the local community connections and administers the UUCL’s “Community Connections.”
