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

UUJAZ Annual Meeting
November 11th, 6pm
Join us for our annual business meeting, recap what we've done together as a state this year in justice work, hear from the Board, share some financial transparency, and talk about 2021 ahead. Thanks to the pandemic, there won't be an in-person Issues + Action Day this year, where this meeting is typically held. We also won't be trying to replicate a day-long event on Zoom... instead, we've been bringing you lots of virtual programming options throughout the summer and fall, and will continue to do so into 2021. Come check out what we've been working on behind the scenes!

Love & Justice: Abolition and Alternatives to Policing
Every first Wednesday, 6:30pm
UUs proclaim that no one is outside the circle of love, therefore, our goals are also abolitionist goals. Join UUJAZ every first Wednesday of the month in actively resisting the systems of policing and incarceration while building relationships and community with other passionate UUs in Arizona. Register for our next meeting here.
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.
Book GroUUp is free to all our monthly sustaining donors. If you wish to join but aren't a donor, you can contribute a suggested donation of $10 at uujaz.org/donate. If you aren't financially able to donate, join us anyway!
Purchasing your books from the UUA Bookstore, InSpirit, supports the work of our faith tradition.
