Faith In Action Council

​How We Help

Faith In Action Council (FIAC) coordinates social action and justice work in the FUSD community.  Currently, FIAC coordinates 5 congregation projects and 3 justice circles.  FIAC maintains a liaison to each group and assists with project proposal development and approval, budget development, promotion, and other needs as they arise.  The approved projects are: Racial Justice, Gun Violence Prevention, Immigration, Mental Wellbeing, and Homelessness & Hunger which includes Family Promise, Women’s Homelessness Initiative, and MetroCaring.  Justice circles include  Environmental Justice, Green Sanctuary, and Whole Souul Economy.   FIAC coordinates a social justice fair, a Religious Exploration social justice fair, a justice leadership workshop, and reviews proposals to represent FUSD on social justice issues.  FIAC also assists the Giving In Action committee, as needed.  Contact us for information on submitting a proposal for a congregational project.

​Choosing Justice Initiatives

Seeking social justice anchors our Unitarian-Universalist commitment to unity, community and peace. In a world fraught with injustice of all kinds, we seek ways to act together, to share our religious commitment to justice, to shore each other up, and to increase our effectiveness in the larger world.

At First Unitarian, we identify each year a set of justice projects that we agree to pursue together. Members develop and propose the projects, and bring them to the full Congregation for consideration at the annual congregational meeting.

The current social justice projects are:

  • ​Homelessness and Hunger
  • ​Illuminating Invisible Injustice, "iCubed"
  • ​​Peace
  • ​Immigration
  • ​Justice Circles
