What social justice opportunities are available at UUCJ?
If you are interested getting involved in community justice through UUCJ, you are urged to check out our ICARE committee. ICARE (the Interfaith Coalition for Action, Reconciliation, and Empowerment) is a group of congregations in Jacksonville who address problems of citywide injustice—UUCJ is a a member. ICARE’s successful actions have resulted in systemic changes, such as the use of restorative justice for youth guilty of misdemeanors.
To learn more, contact the UUCJ ICARE Committee, or check out ICARE’s website.
If you’re interested in starting your own social justice initiative at UUCJ, you need to get approval from the Outreach Portfolio. To learn more about that process, check out the relevant Board policy:
