From the Massachusetts Coalition to Prevent Gun Violence

Our UUMH Social Justice program is an all-congregation effort to bring the principles that guide us into our daily lives. From letter writing to sign-holding stand-outs, from discussion to action, we are living the UU tradition. Meanwhile, the Social Justice Committee acts as a liaison with the community bringing information and links to the Congregation. 


Currently, we are meeting regularly to read and discuss, “Widening the Circle of Concern: Report of the  UUA Commission on Institutional Change” in order to become aware of institutional racism, our own internal feelings about it, and our own behavior. 

Teaming up with other organizations increases our strength. These include (links):

Nauset Interfaith Association

Cape Cod Climate Collaborative


Faith Community Environmental Network


Massachusetts Coalition to Prevent Gun Violence 


Cape Cod Grandmothers Against Gun Violence


Sustainable Practices

In addition, we organize lectures on important issues such as the treatment of immigrant children at the border so that all of us can become more educated about this topic.

My personal commitment as a UU is strongly tied to our 7 Principles and to Social Justice. Living the principles to the best of my ability is my goal. Working together with other UUs and other organizations multiplies our effort. Come join me!

Social Justice Committee Members Stand Out at the Orleans Rotary to Help End Gun Violence!

Three members of the Social Justice Committee - Joan Caputo, Barbara Blanchard and Margaret Tompsett - joined about 40 other people at the Orleans traffic circle to show support for Democracy. In a democracy we rely on Votes not Violence to express our differences.
