BRUU’s very active Social Justice Committee identifies and gives expression to our congregation’s social justice concerns. We engage in social justice education, witness, and advocacy activities and events; we do not sit on the sidelines.  We also disseminate education, advocacy, and witness information to the members of our congregation.

We are a partner and member congregation of the Unitarian Universalists for Social Justice (UUSJ), and make an annual financial contribution to the UUSJ.

Social Justice Task Forces at BRUU

BRUU was active in planning the Youth Behavioral Health Assembly, a VOICE “action” to support full funding for Crisis Receiving Centers, on July 9, 2023.  At that gathering, Gov. Youngkin said “Top priority for what we’re going to do over the next two-and-a-half years is to transform our behavioral health system.”

Share the Plate

One Sunday each month, we share the non-pledge monies of our collection plate with a deserving local non-profit. These are a small sampling of the groups we have contributed to in this way:
