ACTING TO EMPOWER OUR COMMUNITY
TO CHALLENGE THE CONDITIONS
THAT CREATE INEQUALITY AND INJUSTICE
Unitarian Universalists believe that every person is sacred and that there is an interdependent web of all existence. When one part of the web is torn or injured, all other parts are injured, and the web needs to be restored. At Prairie, we hold that faith-based justice work is more than obtaining and sharing information about these interdependencies. It is about transformation. To transform the world, we ourselves need to be transformed — and that is an ongoing process we do together.
Toward that end, we have formed the Prairie Justice League. Our purpose is to provide opportunities for the congregation to act on our collective UU values to make our community and our world a better place – for everyone. We meet to review, discuss, create and support initiatives that promote social justice. The Prairie Justice League also seeks to raise awareness about and engage members in the social justice initiatives of the UUA: https://www.uua.org/justice.
Our work for a better world calls us to sometimes unexpected places as we harness love’s power. From working side-by-side with Aurora Warms the Night, the Metro Denver Sanctuary Coalition, or Black Lives Matter to broadly advocating for all human rights, Prairie members find ways to help make a difference both locally and on the national stage.
The Prairie Justice League meets once a month, typically on second Sunday afternoons. Join us any time to catch up on what’s going on, or to share your thoughts and ideas! Contact us if you’d like to be added to the Prairie Justice League mailing list for all the details!
