Social Justice Is Everyone’s Responsibility
As Unitarian Universalists, we are called to work for love and justice, and we have a long, proud history of doing so in Canada and beyond. The Canadian Unitarian Council encourages coordinated action by our congregations, as well as individual efforts, on matters of social concern. Resolutions dating back to 1963 demonstrate the passion that Unitarian Universalists dedicate to social justice and environmental issues.
“We are called upon to engage in the struggle for human betterment. We don’t know ahead of time if we’ll succeed. In fact, we will often fail. But when success does come, it is oh so sweet!”
—Rev. Fred Cappuccino
