Social Justice

Unitarian Universalist history is inseparable from social justice action, advocacy, and education. Shawnee Mission Unitarian Universalist Church makes a commitment to a wide variety of social justice activities. SMUUCh coordinates its social justice and advocacy action efforts through a representative Social Justice Council (SJC).

Until the great mass of the people shall be filled with the sense of responsibility for each other’s welfare, social justice can never be attained.
— Helen Keller
