The mission of the Justice Council is to promote and facilitate justice work as a vital and integral element of life at Jefferson Unitarian Church. The Justice Council provides service projects, education, witness, advocacy, and community action to ensure opportunities for members and friends to incorporate the Unitarian Universalist commitment to justice into our lives.
Each year our church gives away tens of thousands of dollars to support partner organizations in the community and wider world that share our passion for care and justice. Once a month, we give away our offering plate to organizations proposed by our members. Find out more about who we have given the offering plate to here. You can submit an application on behalf of an organization you think fits our church by downloading an application here.
If you have an idea for a new justice initiative, please contact Rev. Eric Banner. People with new ideas are asked to fill out this application for initial status and have a conversation with Rev. Banner to explore whether or not the proposal can move forward.
We partner for justice through six teams in our church.
Just Neighboring – The All-Church Project that partners with the Edgewater community and with Together Colorado to do community organizing.
Food & Nourishment Team – Partners with a range of community groups to help people eat better and live healthy lives.
