Hot Issues


Climate Change


The UUCR Green Team is part of the global movement to solve the climate crisis, and UUCR is designated a Green Sanctuary by the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations (UUA). For the latest information, visit www.350.orgFor the latest on UU advocacy, visit Unitarian Universalist Ministry for the Earth.


 


LGBTQ Advocacy


UUCR was designated a Welcoming Congregation by the UUA in 1998.  Since then, the LGBTQ Task Group has helped the Equality Maryland movement to pass Maryland's marriage equality law (2012) and created Rainbow Youth Alliance (RYA), a support group for LGBTQ teens (2006). Our LGBTQ Task Group supports and participates in these UUCR programs as well as Montgomery County's Transgender Day of Remembrance and the Capital Pride parade and festival. 


 


Immigration Reform


Hundreds of thousands of immigrants in Montgomery County and the millions more throughout the United States live in the shadows.  Unitarian Universalist principles call for a federal solution that benefits immigrants and enriches our community. For the latest information on legislation and advocacy, visit farmworkerjustice.org.
