11/30/2016: Economic Justice Spotlight: Shoreline Social Action Ministry. Shoreline, WA


This year we embarked on a journey of discovery, to understand the tireless and comprehensive work UU activists were doing to make our world more just. Our call for submissions drew interest from active social justice committees and congregations from every corner of the country. We are pleased to collaborate with them in sharing best practice approaches to justice work for our readers to learn from and to bring inspiration. Enjoy the stories, share in the efforts and use the ideas you see here as a model for your continued work in economic justice. 

This article was developed in collaboration between UUJEC Board member Jim Black and Shoreline Social Action Ministry Communications Coordinator Bob Beekman. You can find the full article featured on our Spotlight page and also in a printable version here. Please share this information with your congregations and feel free to participate in the comment section below.

“The Social Action Ministry of Shoreline Unitarian Universalist Church (Shoreline UUC) of Shoreline, Washington, designed a very comprehensive and interactive six session course on “Escalating Economic Inequality”. The course syllabus and materials are available on Unitarian Universalists for a Just Economic Community’s website. The six session course begins with a reading from the “father of capitalism, Adam Smith, and discussions regarding readings “For and against income inequality”, then ending the six sessions with readings and discussions about twenty-first century tax issues.”
