Unitarian Universalists have a legacy of “deeds not creeds.” Our work for a better world calls us to unexpected places as we harness love’s power to stop oppression. From grassroots community organizing to interfaith state, national, and corporate advocacy; in protest marches, prayer vigils, and press conferences; in homeless shelters and in prisons, Unitarian Universalists put our faith into action.

Guidepost Statement:

In 2022, our congregation voted to adopt the 8th principle, which commits us to “journeying toward spiritual wholeness by working to build a diverse multicultural Beloved Community by our actions that accountably dismantle racism and other oppressions in ourselves and our institutions.”

Guided by the 8th principle and with love at the center, we engage in thoughtful social justice action within the congregation, our North County communities, and the wider world.

Current Justice Work:

Chalice congregants are participating in the UU the Vote letter writing project to get out the vote in the November 2024 elections. We will prepare over 15,000 letters between now and mid-October. We are stockpiling them as posting will be done during the month of October.

Additionally, Chalice congregants have identified the following issues as important to us collectively: anti-racism work, immigration reform, and climate justice.

Current Service Projects:

We provide a monthly dinner at the Turk Center in Escondido. Learn more here.
