Social Justice Action

Justice and inclusion are woven into everything we do at UUCGT. Our Sunday services often focus on relevant local and national justice issues and our membership has a long history of being on the front lines of community action for justice. There are many opportunities to get involved and get informed right here in Traverse City and beyond (click here to see our Action page).

Check out the Unitarian Universalist Association’s vast network focused on Justice and Inclusion (link opens in new window). The Grand Traverse Unitarian Universalist community mirrors on a local level all that you’ll find at the national level.
