UU Justice Florida
UUJF is a statewide justice ministry of Unitarian Universalists, social justice committees and congregations from among the 47 UU congregations in Florida that partners with interfaith and other public interest organizations to promote justice, equity and compassion in public policy.
We focus on a limited number of core issues each year, and educate, organize, and advocate for policies consistent with Unitarian Universalist values. We build coalitions with other advocacy groups to educate ourselves and the public on critical issues of our day and the tools and skills of civic engagement.
Our goal is to help realize the dream of a just society, an improved global community, and a sustainable earth, starting in Florida.
