Mt. Diablo Unitarian Universalist Church is very proud to champion social justice and environmental causes. There are numerous opportunities for members and friends of the church to get involved in this important work.

Each month, a special collection taken at Sunday worship goes to a charity serving the wider community and advancing social justice. The organization is selected by the Social Justice Council.
The Social Justice Council (SJC)
The Social Justice Council coordinates advocacy and witness efforts to make the world a more just and peaceful place. Task forces (or committees) work on issues such as health care reform, helping the elderly, immigration, and other areas. SJC committees often combine efforts with the Mt. Diablo Peace Center, the Interfaith Council of Contra Costa County, the Unitarian Universalist Justice Ministry, and other related groups. Are you passionate about a particular social justice cause? Form a new committee and get other church members interested and engaged in making a difference!
All are welcome! Visit the Social Justice table after Sunday church services to learn more, and see links to the left for information about meetings and ongoing activities.
The Green Group helps members and friends of MDUUC live more environmentally conscious lives. Our primary focus is climate change and its ramifications, so we promote activities that encourage the responsible use of Earth’s resources. On-going activities include: improving the sustainability of the MDUUC campus; promoting recycling; and lobbying for cleaner air and water. Individual members suggest projects that will further the Green Group’s mission statement. (To join the mailing list, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.)

Our current social justice and environmental work is part of a long history of involvement dating back to the early Fellowship days in the 1950s. A PDF of this history is available below.
