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
