Social Justice

“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere” – MLK

Campaign against poverty

Give Away the Plate

We are a people committed to living a revolutionary love. We believe that responding the demands of love and justice changes the world in which we live. We do this individually, in acts of friendship and compassion and we do this collectively as a congregation, through social justice programming, educational workshops, and the advocacy and work of UUCA leaders in the larger community.

UUCA has a rich legacy of social justice work in Georgia. From anti-war activism, involvement in the Civil Rights Movement, to Marriage Equality, our principles have guided us to take actions large and small to work towards love and justice.

UUCA has a number of social justice groups that engage in advocacy, outreach, and education programs at UUCA and in the metro Atlanta community. UUCA has many ways to help you put your faith into action. Come change the world with us!

Check out some of our Social Justice teams

Climate Action Team

Our group focuses on educating and informing group members and UUCA congregants on how they can combat climate change on a personal level. We also organize regular events to contact lawmakers regarding positive legislation to fight climate change. For more information, contact Hoke.Kimball@uuca.org.

Help the Homeless

Our group serves food and makes meals for folks in our Atlanta community. We often join with other faith-based groups such at Central Presbyterian and Nicholas House to support thier work. If you want to join us in helping those in need, join our Facebook group. You will be able to find our upcoming service days and connect with other UUCA volunteers.   

Immigrant Action Team

The mission of the Immigrant Action Team is to support the immigrant and refugee communities in Atlanta by demonstrating that we as a faith community value them as an integral part of our country/society. We work with and support other organizations involved with immigrants and refugees. We are in the process of developing a steering committee at this time. Information on events and meetings will be available on the UUCA calendar and in the Weekly Update.

Partners in Education

For over twenty years, UUCA has worked in partnership with Hope-Hill Elementary School to promote educational achievement and general well-being of students and their families in Atlanta. To provide even more support for students in Atlanta’s Old Fourth Ward community, we work in partnership with Operation P.E.A.C.E., which provides free after-school and summer care. On Saturdays, UUCA members and friends work with our partners at the Big Bethel AME Church’s Saturday School.
