Pacific Unitarian Church’s mission compels us to manifest our values in the wider world. Grounded in our UU principles, we actively donate time and resources to make the world a better place for all beings. Pacific Unitarian actively curates organizations and projects for our members to engage with. We provide opportunities for you to make a powerful difference! Our ministry is headed up by a team of social justice associates who help to set the direction of our justice making. Opportunities are available for members and friends to participate in action.

As we, at Pacific Unitarian Universalist Church, mourn...

the death of George Floyd and the disproportionate impact COVID-19 has on people of color, we support Black Lives Matter. We strive to identify our actions and conversations that support the continuing oppression and white supremacy in our country and do better going forward. As people of faith and conscience dedicated to justice and liberation, we must name this truth.

We join the UUA in taking the following steps:

Truth-telling: Name the Ways Anti-Blackness Shows Up In and Around Us
Repair: Actively Build a Better Way
Resistance: Follow the Lead of Black Organizers

We Decry Anti-Asian Violence

The Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) joins leaders across the country in decrying the recent surge of hate crimes against Asians and Asian Americans. In this last year, violence and verbal harassment targeting this community have been exacerbated by anti-Asian rhetoric and blame.

We call on federal, state, and local governments at every level to send the clear message that such actions will not be tolerated. We are in solidarity with victims, survivors, and families who have suffered loss and pain.
