UU Congregation of the Outer Banks
Kitty Hawk, NC
A small congregation with a big heart. Our motto is fostering wonder, creating connections, nurturing hope and working for justice. UUCOB has a strong tradition of leading and participating in social justice causes that affect our community and the wider world.
Some of our recent activism includes voting rights, racial justice, reproductive justice, solidarity with Ukraine and the fight to end gun violence. Our members and friends also volunteer with dozens of worthy organizations in the surrounding community on the Outer Banks.
UU Fellowship of New Bern
New Bern, NC
The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of New Bern is a diverse community committed to the ideal of being human religiously. We represent a liberal approach to religion, encouraging each other to do the best thing in the best way from the highest motives.
We believe that truth, justice, and compassion are required of us. We believe that love is better than hatred, understanding is better than prejudice, and that if there is ever to be a better world, people of widely differing beliefs will have to help each other build it.
Unitarian Coastal Fellowship
Morehead City, NC
Unitarian Coastal Fellowship is in Morehead City on the beautiful Crystal Coast. With the visibility of our new building, we hope to grow our already very active Social Justice Committee. We are currently working on adopting the 8th principle, and we are also working on renewing our Welcoming Congregation status, which we will complete in February, 2023.
We are restarting our “Days of Service”, encouraging more direct outreach on needed projects in the community. We are proud to be one of the first congregational partners of UU Justice NC (then UUJMNC) and are so appreciative of the leadership they provide.
UU Congregation of Wilmington
“The Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Wilmington North Carolina has an active Social Justice Ministry (SJM) that focuses on voting education and registration, reproductive justice, women’s equality, educational justice, LGBTQ+ rights, and racial equity. As a SJM, we adopt resolutions that affirm our positions and guide our actions. Exploring the 8th Principle is a priority and the SJM is leading the intention to see that process through. We also welcome UUs from around the state to visit during our annual commemoration of the 1898 Wilmington Coup d’Etat, the nation’s only successful coup to overthrow the elected government. During the coup, many of our citizens of color were massacred. Learning about and commemorating this history is vital to understanding the trauma and need for reparations.”
