Social Justice Actions

Social Justice Action

The UUCS Social Justice Committee is working each week to solve issues in homelessness, hunger, needs of children and families, human rights and the health of our planet. Stop by the Social Justice Table after the Sunday service.

Restore Voting Rights: Florida is one of only five states that does not restore voting rights to former felons after they fulfill all terms of their sentence. As a result 9% of Floridians cannot register to vote. Sign the Constitutional Amendment petition on Sunday in the courtyard or sign here and mail in the petition yourself.

Address Hunger and Homelessness Help pack, serve or collect food for adults and kids. Help prevent homelessness. Our project partners include All Faiths Food Bank, Sarasota County Schools, Salvation Army, Sarasota Housing Authority and many others.

Fair Trade Every Sunday We support economic justice for farmers and cooperatives around the world. Coffee, chocolate, tea and other Fair Trade items are available for purchase every Sunday.
