Unitarian Universalist Justice Arizona Network
UUJAZ is a faith-based 501c3 that began in January 2014. We have a small staff of two half-time professionals that engages volunteers to work with us to:
nurture congregational justice ministries by
· providing annual worship services
· offering congregational workshops
· presenting Issue & Action Day each October
networks activists and congregations across Arizona
· through our Issue Action Groups that meet monthly by Zoom on this year’s issues—Immigration, Education, Racial Justice, Income Inequality, and Water.
· by building relationships between congregations through our cluster groups—the Baja Four, Arriba! (Northern AZ), and El Centro (Greater Phoenix area & Yuma)—for collaboration on regional justice building
· by alerting Arizona UUs to justice opportunities on our UUJAZ Facebook page, www.facebook.com/uujaz
empowers Unitarian Universalists to give voice to their values at the legislature
· by hosting UU Day at the Legislature and the trainings to help participants feel effective and confident· by publishing the amazing Legislative Alert e-newsletter that provides a consistent ongoing overview of policy level justice at the Arizona State Legislature and around our state.
