The Do Justice Ministry mobilizes the people of Community United Church of Christ to advocate for structural change, strengthening our work through collaboration with community groups.
We study, discuss, and advocate for public and corporate policies that an unofficial consensus of the church membership deems important, often brought to us by individuals in the congregation. These policies are centered on such issues as peace, justice, equity, and the integrity of our institutions. The congregation acts through prayers, letters, petitions, rallies, visits, and donations. Our work is strengthened through collaboration with community groups. It is Do Justice which mobilizes us to attend HKonJ and to participate in Campaign Nonviolence Week.
Do Justice is responsible for selecting the nominees for the Carolyn and Cy King Peace and Justice Award. They also steward our commitment to two resolutions which describe the kind of congregation we want to become: the Economic Justice Covenant and Just Peace Church. Finally, from time to time they bring to the congregation a resolution advocating for a specific public policy, and then represent the congregation in presenting the resolution to the relevant elected officials.
