Just Peace Action Groups Are Forming

Categories: Carillon Newsletter,Feature,Just Peace,News,ReachingOut

The Just Peace Team met in February, 2018 and are now forming smaller teams to study and plan initiatives for selected justice issues. They are listed below with the name and contact information for each team leader.

If you would like to learn more about the justice issues of the United Church of Christ (UCC), go to  “Understanding the Issues – United Church of Christ”.  You can select issues and read about the background, opinions, resolutions and resources from the national UCC.

If you would like to begin working with one of the following teams, please let the leader know.  The April Carillon will include an article with more specific plans that are being made by each team.  We are hoping you can join us to work for peace and justice and reducing harm to people and the environment.
