Economic Justice Spotlight: BuxMont UU Fellowship, Warrington, PA

Apr 25 2017

Within UUJEC, we embarked on a journey of discovery, to understand the tireless and comprehensive work UU activists were doing tomake our world more just. Our call for submissions drew interest from active social justice committees and congregations from every corner of the country. We are pleased to collaborate with them in sharing best practice approaches to justice work for our readers to learn from and to bring inspiration. Enjoy the stories, share in the efforts and use the ideas you see here as a model for your continued work in economic justice. 

This article was developed in collaboration between UUJEC Co-Chair Terry Lowman and BuxMont UU Fellowship member Celia Sharp. You can find the full article featured on our Spotlight page and also in a printable version here. Please share this information with your congregations and feel free to participate in the comment section below.

 

"BuxMont UU Fellowship’s Peace and Justice Committee drives a thriving social justice ministry.  Their Peace and Justice Committee is a composite of the Peace Initiative, Diversity Task Force, Green Sanctuary, Reproductive Justice, Immigration Liaison, Friday Movies, Oxfam Hunger Banquet and their Split Plate Program.

Located in Warrington, PA, BuxMont UUF has donated over $100,000 to non-profit organizations since 2004.  Their guidelines are that the organization is non-profit and non-partisan (following 501 C3 rules).  The charity must address social justice issues, promote fair and equal treatment while empowering marginalized communities to reduce poverty, racism, homophobia and ageism while reducing violence and preserving the environment."
