Economic Justice

As Canadian UUs, we affirm and promote justice, equity and compassion in human relations, and the goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all. It is therefore incumbent upon us to promote the principles and practices of economic justice within local, national and international communities.

The Economic Justice Group is actively following these important issues:

  1. Income Inequality
  2. Earth Charter
  3. Occupy Movement
  4. Quebec Student Movement

“Therefore be it resolved that the Canadian Unitarian Council affirm the preferential option for the poor which calls for public policies to address and overcome disparities between rich and poor and which calls on governments to carefully consider all reasonable alternatives rather than adopting economic and social policies that require disadvantaged groups in society to make the greatest sacrifices….”
