Forward Together "Justice Action Teams" are grassroots, volunteer-led, and volunteer-directed state-wide or regional teams of UUs that will do the important (and rewarding) work of “giving life the shape of justice” by engaging in mobilization, coordination, organizing, education, witness, advocacy, and direct action with respect to a specific justice issue (for example, environmental justice, LGBTQ, Black Lives Matter, health care, voting rights, gun violence, etc.).
UUJMNC hopes to organize and support at least three statewide Justice Action Teams during the coming year.
Each UUJMNC Justice Action Teams will:
•    consist of at least two co-leaders and at least six to 20 active, committed, and passionate team members who are affiliated with at least three UU congregations;
•    meet regularly via teleconference and communicate regularly via email;
•    develop and implement an annual justice action plan that includes goals, strategies, and activities (including education, training, witness, advocacy, direct action, publicity, communications, congregational involvement, and relationships with other social justice organizations); and
•    submit an annual report of its activities to UUJMNC.
Justice Action Teams are the way that UUJMNC will “give life the shape of justice” by “walking the walk” as well as “talking the talk.”
But we can’t do it without you!!! So please email us if you’re willing to help organize, lead, or be a member of a Forward Together Justice Action Team and tell us which justice issue you want to work on.

Unitarian Universalist congregations affirm and promote seven Principles, which we hold as strong values and moral guides. We live out these Principles within a “living tradition” of wisdom and spirituality, drawn from sources as diverse as science, poetry, scripture, and personal experience.
