Unitarian Universalism is a faith based on deeds not creeds. Our faith has a rich tradition of Social Activism including advocating for economic justice, immigrant justice, LGBTQ justice, voting rights, and human rights for the imprisoned including an end to solitary confinement.

As a faith, we also address human rights and humanitarian crises internationally through our Unitarian Universalist Service organization. (https://www.uusc.org)
Here in our Garden City Congregation, our Social Justice work has developed as a decentralized effort with many people sharing the leadership for the ministry. Our small, but fierce, congregation has been focusing on climate/environmental justice and the needs of the hungry and homeless.
Feeding the hungry and providing for those in need are other areas of our congregational outreach programs coordinated by our Religious Education Program.
Additional efforts include an annual benefit concert, monthly Share the Plate donations, support of the Navajos in New Mexico through the October Pumpkin Patch, Clothing and Shoe drives, all led by different congregational members.
