Rooting us in our religious history and theological callings the six-week curriculum, "Reproductive Justice Curriculum for Congregations", outlines the distinctions between reproductive “health,” “rights,” and “justice”; opens awareness of reproductive oppressions; offers opportunities to learn about ourselves and each other as sexual and reproductive beings; and equips us to move forward, out into the world, with integrity and vision.
Roe v. Wade Anniversary (January)
Thousands of Unitarian Universalists and others celebrated a milestone victory when the Supreme Court legalized abortion in their decision, Roe v. Wade (1973). Both then and now, too many women face significant obstacles to actually obtaining a safe and legal abortion. Every January, use the anniversary as an occasion to celebrate history and recommit to a future of reproductive justice for all.
Mama’s Day (May)
Mother’s Day is more than a day for flowers and pancakes. It's a time to highlight the aspects of motherhood that are not usually visible in the greeting card aisles. It’s a call to honor the resiliency of all those who mother, especially those who bear the brunt of hurtful policies or who are weighed down by stigma in our culture. Every May, it’s opportunity to take action to create the conditions so that all families can thrive.
As Unitarian Universalists, we are the inheritors of a 50-year history of reproductive rights advocacy. We also share a firm commitment to racial and social justice. At the convergence of these interests, we are called to widen the current debate from “reproductive rights” to “reproductive justice,” allowing us to fill a unique niche as both a religious group and a reproductive justice organization.
A guide for leaders and activists on the 'how' and 'why' of building congregational capacity for reproductive justice advocacy, featuring experienced Unitarian Universalist (UU) leaders from churches and organizations around the country.
