UUJO: Unitarian Universalist Justice Ohio Network Launched

The UUJO is a statewide network established on October 20,2012 at a meeting in Columbus for the 41 UU Congregations in Ohio — 30 in the Ohio Meadville District of CERG and 11 in the Heartland District, MidAmerica Region.

The purpose of this network is to:

  1. Enable Ohio Unitarian Universalist social justice activists from throughout the state to unite in an effective statewide network coordinating liberal religious advocacy in our local communities, the state and beyond.
  2. Educate, motivate and activate Ohio UUs to support public policies that are consistent with key UU principles.
  3. Promote social, economic, environmental and racial justice that fosters the dignity of all, the right of conscience, use of the democratic process, liberty and peace.
  4. Organize concrete action and public witness with/and on behalf of marginalized groups and individuals in Ohio
