From 19th century abolitionism to 20th century civil rights to 21st century protection of our planet, Unitarian Universalists have been at the forefront of advancing human rights worldwide. At Channing Memorial Church we are motivated by people like the late Rep. John Lewis who challenges us to make "good trouble" to fulfill the promise of our nation as engraved on the frieze of the U.S. Supreme Court building "Equal Justice Under Law" and our principles of a world community with peace, liberty, justice, equity and compassion for all.
Channing Memorial Church’s Social Justice Team offers our members, friends, youth and children many opportunities to make "good trouble," to work for justice, to make a difference in the world, to live our values and our UU Principles. Opportunities range from several hours once a year to several hours once a month and to more intense activities. Our Social Justice program is three-pronged:
