Today is Giving Tuesday, it's one of the biggest giving days of the entire year.
This global day of giving reimagines a world built upon shared humanity and radical generosity. We acknowledge the many worthy causes that ask for your support and appreciate your consideration of our Justice Ministry.
We are setting a Giving Tuesday goal to raise $10,000 to strengthen our ministries towards social transformation. With your kind gift, here are some things that we can accomplish together:
- Your gift of $50 helps community members access programming, training, and educational opportunities.
- Your gift of $75 helps fund youth leadership programs and form a youth advisory team to ground their justice commitments in deep spiritual practice.
- Your gift of $100 helps mobilize and organize locally and statewide efforts towards a Fossil Free California by eliminating the extraction, production, and transportation of fossil fuels in California.
- Your gift of $150 provides access to UU border Trips for UUs to witness the effect of US Immigration policies from both sides of the border that deepen our faith connection to issues and efforts around immigration justice and connect with communities directly impacted by our broken immigration system.
The UU Justice Ministry of California hosted drop-in "Justice Issue Collectives" (Abolition & Racial Justice, Climate Justice, Economic Justice, and Immigrant Justice), which helped shape our intersectional Justice Priorities.
We stood in solidarity and mobilized UUs around the state to engage in the Protect Juristac mobilization effort through workshops and collaborations with congregations.
We are faith-rooted and focused on organizing and advocating to advance justice in California with you as our partners.
"By being a part of the UUJMCA board, I get to connect with folx who are working towards common goals. These connections are often with people who live and work in different ways than me. However, after connecting through our social justice work, we all walk away better people and I am truly thankful for that and the opportunities UUJMCA provides for these deeper connections.
One thing I’m very excited about this coming year is youth leadership. Through our Arc Benders programming, youth will be engaged at both regional and state levels. There will be leadership development opportunities and the chance to build coalitions around issues youth are concerned with.
Thank you SO much for your generous support of UUJMCA. We value you and your efforts."
