Social Justice at UUOCC

Although UUOCC is a small congregation, we take our commitment to social justice seriously.  We contribute financially to UUFaithActionNJ, the statewide UU social action organization and participate in workshops and activities that they sponsor, particularly in the areas of environmental justice and climate change and immigration policy.  (For more information visit www.uufaithaction.org  Within Ocean County we collectively and individually support the following:

    - Interfaith Hospitality Network - an interfaith ministry providing shelter and assistance to homeless families.

UUOCC (Unitarian Universalist Ocean County Congregation) Social Justice committee members have been talking about the terrible impact of plastic waste in our environment, especially to wildlife in the marine environment. So they decided to do something about it!  Irene Tysh, Elaine McConnell and Barbara Diamantopoulos  have designed a large sized reusable shopping bag  in lieu of the smaller disposable plastic bags given out by most businesses.  These bright colored bags have the UUOCC logo painted on the outside and will accommodate a large number of items; therefore the eliminating the need for the smaller disposable bags.  They will be for sale for $5. All proceeds will benefit the congregation.
