Unitarian Universalism is not a religious tradition with a creed, but a religious movement that has always wedded social justice work to a sense of what it means to be religious. UU history is filled with the story of Unitarians and Universalists working to make the world a better place, through their involvement in abolition, women’s suffrage, temperance, prison reform and many other causes. More recently we have been a force for civil rights, the peace movement, the feminist movement, gay and lesbian rights, universal health care, immigration issues and the ecology movement. This sense of social responsibility draws UUs into ever deepening relationships with the world. One of the challenges of living faithfully is to join hands with others to do the work of justice. Let it be said that Unitarian Universalists are inspired by faith and committed to action.
