Social Justice Ministry Team

Our passion for justice is rooted in our Unitarian Universalist tradition that affirms the “inherent worth and dignity of all people.”

Because our congregation has historic roots in the city of Lynn, we are particularly dedicated to having a supportive presence with other faith communities and community organizations in that city. We feed hungry folks in partnership with food pantries in Lynn and Swampscott, prepare and serve a special holiday meal every year for My Brother’s Table, support literacy programs for children through financial and volunteer involvement, and participate in the many initiatives of the Essex County Community Organization (ECCO).

In the past couple of years we have worked with partner organizations to advocate for the rights of immigrants, a higher minimum wage, earned sick time for all Massachusetts workers, and to support the concerns of the Black Lives Matter movement.

We are a Welcoming Congregation with gay, straight, lesbian, bisexual and transgender members.

We believe that, in the words of Cornel West, “Justice is what love looks like in public.”

We meet once a month and you are welcome to join with us, or participate in any of our sponsored activities.

You can keep up with our events and volunteer opportunities by signing up for the newsletter and checking the What’s Happening page on this website.
