Voice For Justice

In 2013 the Social Justice Committee of the UUFM initiated a project to address issues of immigration and assist undocumented residents apply for a DACA waiver.  We are now a  coalition of six churches, one union and the Manhattan Alliance for Peace & Justice.

We meet at irregular intervals, usually with a speaker from a local organization to hear how they address undocumented residents.

Between meetings we meet with young people eligible for applying for the DACA waiver.

We would like to involve more members who could learn how to assist with applications, do outreach in the community and to help transport applicants to lawyer appointments which are usually out of town.

For further information, contact Anne Cowan at 785-537-2025

Daily Social Action

The UUFM social action committee works on many aspects of social justice.  All those who come to the UUFM are welcome to be part of our actions. Our activities include serving a community breakfast, supporting various local social service agencies, supporting families at the Manhattan Crisis Center at Christmas time, collecting food for the Bread Basket  and being a charter member and co-sponsor of the Flint Hills GI Rights Hotline.  In 2013 the UUFM social action committee initiated a project to address the issue of immigration.  The result is Voice for Justice – now a coalition of six churches, a labor union and the Manhattan Alliance for Peace & Justice.  The committee would like to expand their activities and the above activities could all use more involvement from our membership. If you are interested in making these justice projects part of your life, contact Anne Cowan, Chair of the Social Action Committee of the UUFM
