Unitarian Universalists for a Just Economic Community (UUJEC) is a vibrant progressive organization committed to economic justice for all. Our philosophy is rooted in the UU liberal religious tradition - to create a world of justice, equity, and compassion. Our work contributes to a broader movement for social change, in collaboration with the UUA, UU Service Committee and grassroots organizations. We seek to inspire UUs to study our society’s economic and social systems and to become advocates for justice.
Our current focus is challenging corporate dominance, with our members and allies participating and leading actions to raise the minimum wage, support community banks, credit unions & cooperatives, promote single-payer healthcare, estate tax reform, amending the constitution to remove “corporate personhood,” opposing unfair trade and globalization and ensuring access to available and affordable resources for all.
