About the Social Justice Committee

UCF’s Social Justice Committee was able to continue its work via Zoom meeting during COVID but is very happy to be able to meet in person again.  This committee’s makeup is ever-changing – any member of the congregation can bring a social justice issue or project to a meeting for consideration, or they can join us to work on any of our current projects or issues.  Click here to see our Mission Statement. The minutes of our most recent meeting will give you an overview of our work.

The committee donates money and time to local non-profits that fit with our mission, organizing “Days of Service” when needed.  We hold special collections in times of natural disaster and every month with five Sundays we donate all funds collected during that month that are not designated for pledges or capital campaign, to an organization chosen by our committee.

The Social Justice Committee meets quarterly with frequent email communication between meetings. Co-chairs of the committee are Harriet Altman (harrietaltman@icloud.com) and Barb Thomas (bsthomas2@gmail.com).   Our next meeting will be in August – watch the calendar for date and time. See our 2021-2022 Annual Report, which details the work we did during the past fiscal year.
