Our Mission

The First Parish Social Action Community engages First Parish members, friends and neighbors in deepening our understanding of social and environmental injustices, and opens our hearts and minds spiritually to act in support of those in need.

What We Do

The SAC Coordinator and SAC Board oversee a number of programs whereby congregants engage in many different types of social justice action and advocacy.

There are many opportunities for the wider congregation and community to engage with social justice through education, films, panels, speakers, and direct action. We at First Parish in Concord believe that social action is a pillar of our community life and that doing this work is an inherently spiritual act.

Our activities are regularly updated on our Facebook page, which you can access here.

Who We Are

Many congregants are active in making our Social Action Community vibrant.

Feel free to contact Zach Roe, our Social Action Coordinator, or any one of the SAC Board members below, for further information on how to get involved in social justice work at First Parish.
