Our mission is to
promote poverty alleviation, racial
equity, and other
Our Social Justice Committee was formed as a way to connect volunteers with support groups working on poverty alleviation, racial equity, and other social justice causes within Loudoun county. What began as a simple desire to help has grown into a community mission that supports local and worldwide social justice efforts.
UUCL continually offers opportunities for its members and friends to get involved in social action, through ongoing volunteer opportunities, one-time events, special collections, and other efforts that advance our Unitarian Universalist seven Principles in the Loudoun community and beyond.
We’re accomplishing our mission through a robust social justice agenda comprised of several components. We offer year-round social justice opportunities and special collections, as well as year-round support for All Ages Read Together (AART). Following a collective effort to identify a social justice opportunity that addressed poverty alleviation, our congregation unanimously selected AART, a local nonprofit that provides free pre-school readiness programs to disadvantaged children, as its first “Signature Initiative” to advance social justice by leveling the educational playing field for poor kids. We believe an ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure.
In 2016 we launched a congregation-wide community effort, Loudoun Falls for Social Justice – an event designed to spotlight and support a range of local charitable activities.
