UUPLAN, or the Unitarian Universalist Pennsylvania Legislative Advocacy Network, is our UU vehicle for bringing our values and principles into the public arena where policies are made affecting all Pennsylvanians.
We engage in education, advocacy and lobbying for social justice in Harrisburg and also in the local district offices of our elected officials. Begun in 2007, today UUPLAN has active members 30 of our state’s 40 UU congregations. We work through “Issue Teams” devoted to effective advocacy in specific areas such as Economic Justice, Environmental Justice and Immigration Justice. We select issues that fit our values and that also provide us realistic opportunities for positive impacts, almost always in coalition with other progressive forces.
There are people at USG engaged with many of the initiatives.
