Advocacy

We are here on behalf of The Unitarian Universalist Legislative Ministry of Virginia. We are a statewide organization of Unitarian Universalists working for change. Unitarian Universalist Principles guide us in creating a more just world by being an active voice in the public arena. The Seven Principles of Unitarian Universalism guide our advocacy by supporting bills that ensure the inherent worth and dignity of every person are upheld and that there is justice, equity, and compassion with a goal for peace, liberty, and justice for all.

About Us

on a mission!

The Unitarian Universalist Legislative Ministry of Virginia is one of the UU State Advocacy Networks (UUSANs).  Over half the states in the US now have UU State Advocacy Networks and we are making a difference at the state level from gaining marriage equality for same gender loving couples, to repealing the death penalty, to enacting important environmental legislation, to getting immigrant family friendly Trust Acts passed, to raising state minimum wages.  In our work, we acknowledge the importance and value of a religious voice in the public debate.

Each Network is locally based, led by UUs working under the basic principle that sustained, positive change is built through the work of organized activists with the courage to challenge and confront oppression. And the “Network of State Networks’ is pulling together on federal campaigns as well. Through this work, we seek to build our faith and give voice to Unitarian Universalist Principles in the public arena.  UU state networks work with interfaith partners and justice organizations in their states.   Watch the new video, What is your state of justice? video that debuted at General Assembly.  It is about the work of the UU State Advocacy networks, including the UU Legislative Ministry of Maryland.  It demonstrates how UUs are coming together across the country to work for our UU values on both the state and national levels.

We want to be your home for legislative issues.
