Justice Work at UUFC means reaching out and meeting the needs of our community as part of our spiritual practice. The Social Justice Committee has identified helping the unhoused, connecting people to food and social services, and protecting the environment as top priorities. Action taken by the committee has included supporting the low barrier shelter, providing funds towards a UUFC sponsored “tiny house” at Chico Housing Action Team’s (CHAT) Simplicity Village, and supporting the local chapter of 350.org to end the use of fossil fuels. One-quarter of our Sunday cash offering goes to charities voted on by our members. Contact Bob Crowe at firstname.lastname@example.org or Angela Risdon at Risdon2@comcast.net
