UNITARIAN UNIVERSALIST SOCIAL JUSTICE WORK
Louisville is fortunate to be the home of THREE Unitarian Universalist congregations — Clifton Universalist Unitarian Church, First Unitarian Church, and All Peoples Unitarian Church (formerly Thomas Jefferson). The social justice committees of the three congregations have individually and together endeavored to amplify our justice work.
Examples of Justice Ministry
Together, we have done prison ministry at Luther Lucket Correctional Complex; we join togther marching each June in the Pride Parade; we participate in social action demonstrations; and we work to Answer the Call of Love in the Louisville/Southern Indiana area.

ANNUAL UUA GENERAL ASSEMBLY
Every summer, the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations holds General Assembly, a gathering of representatives from the more than 1,000 member congregations. This is the way Unitarian Universalists conduct Association business — electing spokespeople and leaders, deciding what issues we will pursue as a denomination, and using the democratic process to shape what we stand for and how we will present ourselves to the world.
The General Assembly also provides the opportunity for diverse worship experiences, informative lectures, empowering workshops, and the chance to work, play. and socialize with thousands of Unitarian Universalists from across the United States. There are wonderful programs offered for all interests, and for all ages (children and youth programming is invariably … well, AWESOME). Learn more about General Assembly.
UUA COMMON READ
A Common Read invites participants to read and discuss the same book in a given period of time. A Common Read can build community in our congregations and our movement by giving diverse people a shared experience, shared language, and a basis for deep, meaningful conversations. Learn more about this year’s book and discussion questions.
