UULM California is a statewide justice ministry that serves to empower the moral voice of Unitarian Universalist values in the public arena. Guided by Unitarian Universalist principles, the Ministry seeks to develop the skills of civic engagement that we may educate, organize, and advocate for public policies that: Charitable activity is a familiar and important part of a religious life. However, when poverty, environmental degradation, inequitable access to health care, and higher education are part of the structures of society, rather than unforeseen exceptions, then we know that charity is not enough. Our faith calls us to change policies and structures that inhibit human development, harm the environment, and destroy communities. We are called to educate and organize for justice. Unitarian Universalist clergy have been officiating at the religious weddings of same-sex couples in our congregations for over 30 years. Unitarian Universalists have a vital role to play in educating and organizing to achieve full civil marriage equality for same-sex couples. UULM-CA is actively organizing Freedom to Marry Task Forces in our local congregations, and is part of the Let California Ring public education campaign. UULM-CA also organized the interfaith amicus brief on the consolidated marriage cases now before the CA Supreme Court. UULM-CA is working with a broad coalition to support the Californians for Healthy Kids 100% Campaign, working to assure that every CA child has access to affordable health insurance. UULM-CA is also working with the many UUs who are active in "Health Care for All", championing a comprehensive single payer solution to the health care crisis. UULM-CA organizes educational opportunities through which UUs can learn more about the health care crisis, proposed solutions, and the ethical questions we face.
