UUCCI members participate as individuals in community-wide activities to raise awareness of issues such as environmental concerns, children’s rights, racial justice, marriage equality, and reproductive rights.
Many members work as CASAs (Court-Appointed Special Advocates) for dependent children. Some serve at hot meal sites that bring food and fellowship to those in need. Others have testified in the Indiana Legislature on current issues such as marriage equality.
As needs arise in society, we sometimes respond by organizing a class to study the topic and clarify issues, such as recent classes on Reproductive Justice or the Selma (Civil Rights) Awakening. However, we expect that within our diverse group, individual opinions will differ on such controversial topics.
This congregation has been an active supporter of the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee (UUSC). From 2004 through 2007 and from 2009 through 2012, we have been honored as a Creating Justice congregation with 25 to 49% of our members making an annual contribution to the UUSC. In 2008, we were honored as a Vision of Justice congregation with 50 to 74% of our members contributing to the UUSC.
