This fall, UUCM’s Social Justice team will be implementing a campaign to cultivate and strengthen relationships within our congregation. We are more powerful when we work together, and we will “visit” with congregants to explore new ways to live out our values. Please sign up here if you would like to be contacted for a one-on-one in-depth conversation. Visits can be either in-person, by phone or on Zoom. If you are interested in learning to become an in-reach conversation facilitator (Visitor), please contact Sue Fust at email@example.com or 952-406-2464. We are hoping to help congregants find any opportunities within the church – not only related to social justice – that will enable them to become involved. We look forward to visiting with you!
Black Lives of Unitarian Universalism (BLUU) harnesses love’s power to combat oppression and foster healing as a spiritual and political imperative. BLUU’s goals include expanding the power and capacity of Black UUs within the UU faith, providing support, information and resources for Black UUs and engaging in justice-making and liberation through the UU faith and values. This month’s offering will support BLUU’s Northside Housing Cooperative Initiative in North Minneapolis. The project embodies the commitment to improve the material condition of Black lives and will empower 32 Black and Indigenous families as homeowners, transforming access to wealth and resources for generations.

So how much energy have we produced so far, you might be wondering? As of the end of June, solar power at UUCM produced 4.4Megawatts of energy and we are starting to see some savings on our monthly energy bill! Thanks to all who helped make this happen.
