    Florida UUs participate in “Witnessing Together for Farmworker Justice” with the Coalition of Immokalee Workers

    We work for justice, equity, and compassion in our relationships and systemic change in our society. We know that the escalation of economic inequality undergirds a thousand injustices, from climate change to homelessness, from mass incarceration to low-wage worker exploitation. Economic inequality also disproportionately impacts people of color. A better world is possible, and we strive to be part of the solution.??

    What We Are Doing

    • Escalating Economic Inequity?Statement of Conscience?
      At the 2017 General Assembly, Unitarian Universalists?(UUs) passed a Statement of Conscience on Escalating Economic Inequity, following four years of study and action.?UUs are committed to engage with the escalation of economic inequality as a moral issue.?Download the Escalating Inequality CSAI?Study Guide (PDF, 19 pages).
    • Poor People's Campaign
      The Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival?is uniting tens of thousands of people across the country to challenge the evils of systemic racism, poverty, the war economy, ecological devastation and the nation’s distorted morality. We align with the following goals, strategies, and tactics that ?strengthen multi-faith and partner relationships and coalitions, deepen our own faith, and help build a transformative movement for justice.
    • Raising the Minimum Wage
      The minimum wage in the United States was originally intended to be a living wage, yet it’s been decades since it was. We view raising the minimum wage to a living wage as a moral imperative and are working on local, state, and national levels to do so, through campaigns such as Fight for $15?and more.
    • Socially Responsible Investing
      It’s a moral imperative for us that where we put our money is aligned with our values. We have been strongly committed to socially responsible investing for over forty years, from shareholder resolutions, to community investing, to affordable housing and other justice initiatives.?
    • UU Class Conversations
      Conversations about class and classism are vital to healthy faith communities. The organization Unitarian Universalist Class Conversations works to provide our movement with new spiritual tools to explore class and classism and create welcoming and inclusive congregations for people of all class backgrounds.
