Making "Good Trouble"

Unitarian Universalists have a long history of advancing human rights, from 19th century abolitionism to 20th century civil rights to 21st century protection of our planet. 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 on these pages information about making "Good Trouble." We offer our  members, friends, youth and children many opportunities to work for justice and to make a difference in the world, to live our values and our UU Principles.  These 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:

Awareness: Learn about issues in-depth

Advocacy: Influence decision makers to implement public policies that reflect our UU Values

Action: Do public witness, e.g. vigils, rallies, protests, demonstrations & learn about opportunities at Channing
