Sample Justice Sunday Announcements and Articles
These sample announcements can be read during worship services and committee meetings. They can also be published in your congregational newsletter or on your congregation’s website.
This general announcement gets the word out in your congregation about activities leading up to Justice Sunday. It can also accompany announcements for special Justice Sunday-related activities, such as film screenings, book discussion groups, and the annual Get-Together(the annual live dialogue with our featured author).
If you are dedicating a plate collection, planning a UUSC membership drive, or advocating for a congregational budgeted gift to UUSC during your Justice Sunday program, remember to highlight these key points:
UUSC is a membership organization that is independent of and receives no funding from government or the UUA. It depends on the active participation and financial support of its members and supporters to carry out its vital work.
UUSC’s status as a membership organization provides it the autonomy to advocate for justice-oriented public policies across the political spectrum. By neither seeking nor accepting government funds, UUSC maintains a high level of independence
Contributions from members and supporters makes up approximately 60 percent of UUSC's annual budget.
UUSC applies 87 percent of its revenue directly to programmatic work.
- A congregational budgeted gift of at least $1 per certified member qualifies the congregation for the James Luther Adams award!
