Social Justice Calendar

Islamaphobia Vigil SmallIn an effort to keep the congregation more informed about opportunities to get involved in social justice activities within the greater Salem-Keizer area, the Social Justice in Action Team (SJAT) has created an online calendar. The events posted on the calendar are not necessarily organized by the SJAT, but by other community organizations whose activities align with the 7 principles of Unitarian Universalism. If you utilize Google Calendar or other supported online calendar services you can subscribe to the calendar, allowing events to be added to your own personal calendar. If you know of an event that would be appropriate for this new calendar, please notify our team by filling out the Request To Add Social Justice Event form.
