We meet the 2nd Tuesday of each month, and all are welcome! Please also visit the Social Justice tables in Robinson Lounge after Sunday services to find out about upcoming events and initiatives. Our committee works well in collaboration with local groups to bring social justice information and actions to our congregants, as well as others.

  • This month, March, is be our annual ‘Loaves and Fishes’ meal for our neighbors in need, as well as the Citizen’s Climate Lobby meeting and films in Fahs (The Best Democracy Money Can Buy on March 19, 3 pm).
