Economic Justice Action Group

Welcome to the Economic Justice Action Group

(Visit out Website at EJAG). 
-------------------
The Economic Justice Action Group (EJAG) is a group in our social justice ministry that focuses on the fundamental causes of problems in our society and world.  EJAG considers it our job to learn about economic fundamentals causing injustice and to educate, advocate, and demonstrate in our religious community as well as the community at large.


The particular tools we use are book studies, movies, legislative advocacy, in the street demonstrations, and tabling at various activities (including at Sunday Services).  There are plenty of places to plug in.

We feel that there is an infinite variety of end effects of market capitalism.  Some good, some bad, but all worth exploring, understanding and using in our work.

Specific areas that we are currently focused on are: Fair Trade, Democracy under attack, environmental injustice, and healthcare.  We are always looking for new people with a particular focus.  Labor policy and housing are currently areas we feel a need to explore further.  Join us!


We meet on the 3rd Sunday at 9am-10:00am in Buchan Rm#310.  Join us for updates, planning, and discussion.

Out of a Job? --by Rev. Kate Lore
You are not alone. Many members of our congregation are struggling. Some are out of work, are working part-time but need full-time work, or are worried their job might be cut.  Labor Day weekend is an important time to lift up the current state of our economy and job market.  Thus, Rev. Kate Lore will preach on this subject on Sunday, Sept. 4.  In the meantime, however, please know of the following resources:

1. UU Electronic Job Board. (for more, scroll down). If you are seeking employment or have access to job listings, please join our UU Job Board list serve. To subscribe from to the group, send an email to:

After you have joined you will receive any postings sent to the list.  Those postings are sent by members like you so if you encounter  jobs that may not be suitable for you, please post the details, including contact information, to this list so others may consider them.

2. Connect with Interfaith Worker Justice, a network of people of faith that calls upon our religious values in order to educate, organize, and mobilize the religious community in the United States on issues and campaigns that will improve wages, benefits, and conditions for workers, and give voice to workers, especially workers in low-wage jobs.


3. National Interfaith Job Club. Job clubs play an important function in helping unemployed community members find a new job and manage the challenges associated with unemployment. In this topic area, learn how to start or sustain your job club, connect to the local public workforce system, network with other job club coordinators, and share your own experiences and best practices.

4. Keep coming to church! It is easy to isolate oneself while facing prolonged unemployed.  By coming to church, you are reminded that our failing job market is not your fault. Together we have the power to get through hardships and organize for change!
