This committee coordinates opportunities for Cedars members to give funds and volunteer time to service organizations that alleviate such social concerns problems as hunger and homelessness.
Cedars believes that a commitment to social justice is a natural extension of both our fellowship’s mission statement and the Unitarian Universalist principles. We further believe that integrated and coordinated social action is integral to the life and growth of our fellowship. Our mission, therefore, is to identify and facilitate involvement in social action and social justice projects to which we can make a positive and substantive contribution.
