Play Your Leading Role on this Issue of Social Justice

True to our legacy of leadership on these issues, the Unitarian Universalist Association once again made history among religious organizations when we endorsed “Reproductive Justice” at Justice GA 2012 and chose it as our next Congregational Study/Action Issue (2012-2016). This topic, while inclusive of reproductive choice, provides UUs the opportunity to educate and act on a broader and deeper level, aligning us with a movement for reproductive justice began by women of color whose reproductive “choices” were impacted by more than the legality of abortion. Reproductive justice is about the reproductive and sexual wholeness of all people and communities. Find out more with the new UUA curriculum.

Intensified by the current ‘War on Women‘ and the 2012 Presidential and Congressional elections, there has never been a better time for progressive people of faith to work for reproductive justice. If we are to sustain a long and challenging public campaign with integrity, we must ground ourselves in Unitarian Universalist history and theology, and in relationship to each other and our reproductive justice partners.

A brand new curriculum from the UUA, “Reproductive Justice: Expanding Our Social Justice Calling,” was written for all of these purposes; to equip UUs with tools for effective public advocacy, to tie us with our theological and historical resources, to help us understand the complexities of reproductive justice, and to strengthen our relationships with each other and others. Find out more about this new 6-week curriculum and download your copy for free. Find resources and information about reproductive justice at the UUA.

January 22, 2013 marks the 40th anniversary of the landmark Roe v. Wade case which made abortion legal in the United States. Preaching on this topic would be a great way to launch the curriculum in your congregation. The UUA is partnering with the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice (RCRC) to create a preaching resource on the anniversary, including readings, questions, statistics, and stories.  Contact Rev. Rob Keithan by email, (or 202.628.7700, ext. 28.), Director of Public Policy at RCRC, to be notified when the resource will be released.
