Take Action for Racial Justice
First Congregational Church proclaims that black lives matter and as a church, we are committed to addressing injustices, oppression and racism. Here are a few ways to take action, big and small.
Join the UCC Justice and Peace Action Network!
The Justice and Peace Action Network (JPANet) is the arm through Justice and Witness Ministries of the United Church of Christ, and it is our denomination’s grassroots advocacy network composed of individual members and local UCC congregations across the country. The JPANet both educates and engages its members in shaping public policy in keeping with God’s vision of a just and loving society.
