Operation Team for Social Responsibility
Right Relationship in the World
Lucia Faithfull, Petal Lead
The Social Responsibility Teams work to serve, to raise awareness, and to support and partner with people who face injustice. We advocate, organize, and act for justice to live out the values of our faith.
We engage in the world with Denominational Affairs through UUA Study Action Issues and the UU Service Committee (UUSC) and with allies in the broader community.

We’re also a certified Green Sanctuary, a designation conferred by the Unitarian Universalist Association in recognition of our commitment to conducting our church life in accordance with Seventh Principle, to affirm and promote the interdependent web of all existence, of which we are a part.
And we’re recognized by the Unitarian Universalist Association as a Welcoming Congregation. This means we affirm and include people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer at every level of congregational life—in worship, in program, and in social occasions—welcoming them as whole people.
