To energize people of faith to create an environmentally sustainable, spiritually fulfilling, socially just life for all those who live in Arizona.
To engage Arizona Unitarian Universalists in justice making through:
nurturing congregational social justice ministries;
connecting UU activists and congregations across the state;
partnering with like-minded justice organizations;
empowering UUs to work for socially just public policy.
Keep my anger from becoming meanness.
Keep my sorrow from collapsing into self-pity.
Keep my heart soft enough to keep breaking.
Keep my anger turned towards justice, not cruelty.
Remind me that all of this, every bit of it, is for love.
Keep me fiercely kind.
- Laura Jean Truman
Join Rev. Tina Squire, of Sky Island UU, the third Friday of each month at noon, for a justice-centered book discussion from the perspective of our Unitarian Universalist values.

What does it look like for UU's to be anti-racist and anti-oppressive? Join UUJAZ to read the Commission on Institutional Change's report "Widening the Circle of Concern" compiled over three years of interviews and research, analyzing structural and systemic racism. Discuss the recommended actions, and how they could translate into our UU congregations in Arizona, to advance long-term cultural and institutional change that redeems the essential promise and ideals of Unitarian Universalism.
Thursdays August 6th-Sept 10th 7-8pm
