Justice is on a roll! PDF Print E-mail edit

 jam-logo At First UU, justice work is undergoing a major transformation with the Justice Action Ministry (JAM), a multi-generational, multi-racial, and often musical celebration of the work of justice.

We're jammin'!

What JAM is about...

Our spiritual lives are inseparable from the struggle for equal access to food, clean air and water, housing, education, employment, health care, and legal defense as well as respect for the rights of women, people of color, immigrants, religious minorities and lesbian, gay, bi-sexual and transgendered humanity. This is based on our belief in inherent worth and dignity of every human being and in the interdependent web of life. Working for justice is therefore as much a spiritual practice as prayer and meditation.

Toward this end, JAM

  • is the unified work of the Board of Trustees, committees, youth, choir members and musicians, covenant groups, members, friends and staff of First UU, and
  • will boldly engage the justice issues of the day and will provide church members ample opportunities for public witness of their faith.

"Let justice roll down like waters and righteousness like a mighty stream."

--Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. quoting Amos, Letter from Birmingham Jail (April 1963)
