Our Mission

The First Parish Social Action program engages 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

Social Action Programs of First Parish in Concord and also regional, national, and international UU social action entities in the Greater UU world engage congregants in many different types of social justice action and advocacy. For 2021, we are following last year’s focus on election with a pledge to continue work relevant to racial justice.  We also accept and manage funding requests for Share the Plate recipients.

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 and UUs in general 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 the website CALENDAR.  See our Facebook page for timely action opportunities related to our focus justice areas.

Who We Are

Many congregants are active in making our Social Action community vibrant. To learn more about what we do, feel free to contact any of the current social action leaders of our Social Action Programs.
