The Unitarian Universalist denomination has many social justice oriented organizations. The following are the ways our Fellowship is involved with just a few of these. For more information on any of these initiatives, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Partner Church Committee
The Partner Church Committee maintains the relationship with the Fellowship’s partner church in Sinfalva, Romania (Transylvania). The Committee raises funds, disseminates information about the origins and history of Unitarianism and its state in modern-day Romania, and encourages contacts between the members of the two congregations. The national UU Partner Church Council maintains a website here.
The old Partner Church Committee website with lots of interesting content can be seen at the old PCC page
Unitarian Universalist United Nations Office Envoy and Committee
The Unitarian Universalist United Nations Office (UU-UNO), is a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) with consultative status at the UN, which offers access to critical forums and working groups for real influence on issues being worked at that global body. Recent initiatives include a successful push to have GLBT rights recognized as human rights on the world stage; Women & Security; and Women & Climate Change.
The Fellowship Envoy Committee represents the UU-UNO within our congregation, raises funds to support the group through individual and congregational membership; disseminates information on current UN activities as well as the UU-UNO’s own programs, and plans Sunday Services and other events at the Fellowship to promote UU-UNO’s goals.
Unitarian Universalist Legislative Ministry of NJ
The Fellowship is a member of the UU Legislative Ministry of NJ (UULMNJ). Fellowship members with interests in health care, economic and environmental justice, marriage equality, and immigration reform can join with other New Jersey UU congregations to effect change through the state legislative process.
Denominational Affairs Liaison
The Denominational Affairs liaison is responsible for keeping the Fellowship informed of what is happening at the Unitarian Universalist Association. The liaison keeps members and friends abreast of social justice initiatives, including Study Action Issues and informed of the decisions that can affect our congregation. Things like Fair Compensation Guideline updates and opportunities for grants or programs through the denomination.
