The Justice Summit is a vital tradition for NW Unitarian Universalists and their justice allies that is held in the fall. At each year’s summit, activists come together to consider how best to address social, environmental and economic justice issues that challenge our world. It is also calls us into action. At the end of the day, participants leave with new insights, renewed inspiration, plans for action, and vital new partners and tools with which to pursue their justice work.
The Legislative Conference is another vital tradition for politically engaged UUs in the State of Washington. It is that is held after the November elections of each year. We maintain a Unitarian Universalist presence in the legislative process. We work to educate and develop a politically informed network. We encourage Unitarian Universalists to reflect on and act on their religious values to promote a just and sustainable world.
The Legislative Conference is an annual event of JUUstice Washington in which Unitarian-Universalists meet, on a congregational or individual basis, with other Unitarian-Universalist congregations around the state. We discuss a list of issues on which we expect legislative or initiative action in the next year, and choose priorities based on our commitments and moral obligations. We schedule the conference after the election to determine if there are areas of policy where we can be effective.
