This Week in Social Action Ministry

The Social Action Ministry (SAM) at First Parish comes from our Unitarian Universalist faith based on the values of love, justice, community and responsibility. We do this within the supportive environment of our broader church community and the mission of First Parish “…to act on our values to serve the larger community and create a more just and loving world.”

Political Activism

The President’s budget released a week ago increases military spending at the expense of many of the programs that support the health of our fellow citizens and the world we live in.
