UU Voices (Now JUUstice Washington) holds a legislative conference yearly to discover member priority issues. This has allowed us to focus on issues of most interest to members – and focus on issues in play at the state and local legislatures. We look to inform, organize and activate UU congregations in Washington state. The November 18, 2018 audio/visual conference was attended by 50 members from around Washington state.
After face to face group meetings where possible, and virtual meetings where needed, a series of issues were nominated for priority in 2019. Follow up eMail asked members to identify and rank their individual priorities. Those most important priorities are listed below.
- Ensure Carbon Pollution Accountability
- Reform the Legal System, End Cash Bail
- Reform State Taxes and Funding and Establish a Washington State Public Bank
As we act and advocate for a better world, we want to be spiritually aligned with UU values and prepared with factual knowledge and analysis to be effective in our work.
