Challenging Injustice, Advancing Human Rights

The Unitarian Universalist Service Committee advances human rights through grassroots collaborations.

Choose Compassionate Consumption Minimum Wage Campaign Webinar

Over the next year, we want to build movement of UUs and allies to change the conditions — including raising the minimum wage — of millions of workers. How?

  • Introduce issues to a wide audience through Behind the Kitchen Door, the Common Read chosen by the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA)

  • Train groups to take action as consumers, legislative advocates, and partners

  • Coordinate a series of actions between the summer and midterm elections that will pressure policy makers to make vital changes

This kickoff webinar gives an overview of the campaign, the actions being planned for the year, and the resources being created to help make it happen!
