As UU’s we have a legacy of “deeds not creeds.” We are called by our 2nd Principle to pursue the goal of justice, equity and compassion in human relations. Our work for a better world sometimes calls us to unexpected places as we harness love’s power to stop oppression. From grassroots community organizing to interfaith state, national, and corporate advocacy; in protest marches in Hartford and prayer vigils at Sandy Hook; in the Dorothy Day soup kitchen and in the Danbury federal prison, the Unitarian Universalists of UUCD put our faith into action.
Our call to break down divisions, heal isolation, and honor the interconnectedness of all life and all justice issues. We model these commitments by creating just, welcoming, and inclusive congregations. We act in partnership with groups and communities most impacted by injustice on local, state, national, and international levels.
Our ministry focuses on organizing and includes service, education, advocacy, and public witness (the spiritual practice of taking a public position in support of justice).
