Nature Coast Social Justice Committee 2014-2015
Our SJC reformed in November just in time for a Black Friday action in front of Wal-Mart. We attended the Free the Giant Within workshop hoping to learn how to organize and prioritize the many, many issues that need reform. We have joined UU Justice Florida, and finally have a budget for the year.
NCUU SJC has been working on several SJ issues: Minimum Wage, Clean Water, we just finished Climate Change Month re: Commit to Respond. This year we started monthly forums. The three Forums were: Move to Amend to reverse Citizens United, the next focused on Inequality for All, and our last was a presentation by the local president from the League of Women Voters on Felons Rights. Flyers were made available regarding Felon’s Rights after the Forum on Sunday and petitions signing was supported
Since 2012 a group of us is continuing a community outreach called Citizens for Informed Teens and since then we have been working in the community to promote accurate, effective, quality sex education free from bias and political ideology. This was in response to UUA’s Reproductive Justice suggestion for Congregational study.
Our Justice committee is hardworking and creative. We are looking for ways to partner in the state with other UU groups and in our community. We attended the Free the Giant Within workshop in Orlando hoping to learn how to organize and prioritize the many, many issues that need reform. We have joined UU Justice Florida, and have a budget for the upcoming year.
- Passed the Move to Amend Resolution.
