UU Congregation of Asheville
Justice Ministry at UU Asheville challenges us to live our values as individuals and as a congregation. Our Justice Ministry Council supports justice engagement and facilitates communication. During COVID, our board committed to an assessment to find out where we are with anti-racism and anti-oppression practices. Recently, our board accepted the assessment report and committed to “offer guidance/direction” for realizing their recommendations for moving toward collective liberation. The first recommendation is forming an 8th Principle Task Force to educate and guide our congregation as we explore what adoption would mean for us. We are excited for the work before us! Justice Lead: Rev. Claudia Jiménez email@example.com

The UUFH Social Justice Team promotes justice work in multiple areas including economic and environmental justice, minority scholarship programs, UUtheVote, migrant worker aid, and our newest effort, providing diversity focused books for schools and other organizations.
Per our increased focus on racial justice issues, in June 2022, the Fellowship formally adopted the 8th Principle and approved a congregational project plan (link: 22-23 UUFH Congr. Project Allies for Racial Equity). The Team communicates with the Fellowship via our Fellowship’s weekly emails updates and a more detailed email, jUUstice Workers News.
