Every month the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) has been implementing robust action campaigns that aim to engage Unitarian Universalist (UU) congregations and individuals. These "Actions of the Month" focus on accomplishing concrete objectives that reflect our faith values.
The Unitarian Universalist Association and the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee are members of the interfaith Let Justice Roll Living Wage Campaign, a nonpartisan coalition of more than 90 faith, community, labor and business organizations working towards a just minimum wage. The Let Justice Roll Living Wage Campaign achieved a huge success in July 2007, when the minimum wage was raised for the first time in years. However, more is still needed. Thus, January's Action of the month is Living Wage Days.
Support from Unitarian Universalist congregations has been strong, with several congregations have already signed-up to hold services and events during the month.
Rev. William G. Sinkford, President of the UUA, preached at the UU Church of Nashua, NH, for their Living Wage Service on January 25, 2009. His sermon, "Living Faithfully: Working for Living Wages" (PDF), is excerpted.
Other congregations include:
In addition to services and events, hundreds of Unitarian Universalists have already signed the Let Justice Roll Letter to Congress for $10 in 2010. Please join them!
