The Social Action Committee is continuing a long tradition of advocacy and action on social issues. The Committee strives to educate the congregation about local, national, and global concerns while identifying activities and projects that benefit individuals, families, and the community.
The Social Action Committee encourages the congregation to inform area legislators of their views on a variety of social issues through letter writing initiatives.
We also have available a “Help” brochure of community resources for families and individuals in crisis, linking those individuals to the many support systems in our community: http://uumiddleboro.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/HELP-BROCHURE.pdf
As a “Welcoming Congregation” we support the rights of gay, lesbian, and bisexual individuals in our society and welcome their full participation in our community. We support the Unitarian Universalist Association’s Service Committee in its efforts around the world and the UUA’s Urban Ministry program in inner city areas.
