Mission of the Social Justice Committee: Address the root causes of social or environmental inequities through education and advocacy in a respectful, peaceful, and faith-based manner. 


Guiding Principals: Create a safe space for dialogue, and create change through non-violent, prayerful, and faith-guided means.

In recognition of MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS MONTH, the Board of Missions and Outreach has made a donation to support NAMI-MASS.  Click here to hear Sam's Story.

Did you know about the UCC MENTAL HEALTH NETWORK, whose mission is to reduce stigma and facilitate inclusion of people with mental health conditions and their families into the life, leadership and work of the church?  Check out these links: http://mhn-ucc.blogspot.com/  and  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aqga8Ct5WIo   You can find inspiration as well as advice on surviving the pandemic.
