Working for Change
A Voice for Justice, Equality and Compassion in New Jersey
The Princeton chapter of the Unitarian Universalist Legislative Ministry, (UULMNJ), advocates for social and economic legislation that embodies our Unitarian Universalist values. We research issues, formulate positions, and speak with one voice. Through our task forces, we work for economic justice, improved health care, environmental protections, just immigration policies.
As part of the UULMNJ, an affiliation of 21 New Jersey UU congregations, Princeton Unitarians have advocated for clean water, better housing, a higher minimum wage, and immigrant rights.
