Social Justice at UUCB

Immigration Ministry

We support the Boulder immigrant community through direct interaction, coalition-building, advocacy, non-violent direct actions like vigils, and community education. The Immigration Ministry Team meets to plan the work and reflect on what has been done.

We recently discerned and voted to become a Sanctuary Host Congregation. Documents that supported our decision are here. More information about how we are moving forward can be found on our Sanctuary page.

Each year the congregation nominates and votes on eight local non-profits to receive half of our Sunday offerings for a month. These organizations also offer opportunities for church members to volunteer in the larger Boulder community. Contact Caitlin Moore to learn how you can get involved

Welcoming Congregation / LGBTQ+ Ministry

The Unitarian Universalist Church of Boulder welcomes people of all sexual orientations and gender identities, and we work with local nonprofits supporting lesbian, gay, bisexual, pansexual, transgender, queer, intersex, and asexual concerns. Since 1999 we have been certified by the Unitarian Universalist Association as an LGBTQ+ Welcoming Congregation.

Social Justice Public Forums

We organize and host presentations by a variety of speakers, authors, thinkers, and performers who challenge us to understand the issues of our times, and the possibilities of our social witness. Look for new public forums in our electronic newsletter.
