Hopedale’s Social Justice Committee is working to promote the values of the Green Sanctuary and the Welcoming Congregation. News stories, activities, and other resources to help inform our study of economic justice, immigration, LGBTQ justice, ethical eating, and other emerging issues will be posted here. Earth Justice issues are found on a separate page.

To view the Social Justice Committee, HUUC  website got to huucsj.org and sign up for their news posts.


The Social Justice Committee participates in the annual Cincinnati Pride Parade and Festival. A Cincinnati church also hosts an Interfaith Pride Service each year; this special event celebrates the blessings our LGBTQ friends bring to our community. There are many other exciting events that take place during Pride Week. Visit http://www.cincinnatipride.org to see the latest list of events.


Ten Economic Facts

  • WHEREAS, “Ethical Eating” was selected at General Assembly in 2008 to be the Congregational Study/Action Issue for 2008-2012; and
  • WHEREAS, the Board of Hopedale Unitarian Universalist Community believes that the Hopedale Community benefits from our association with and enactment of the priorities of the Unitarian Universalist Association; and
  • WHEREAS, the Hopedale Unitarian Universalist Community is proud of our status as a Green Sanctuary, and strives to enact that status in as many of our programs as possible; and
  • WHEREAS, the Board perceives that the Hopedale Unitarian Universalist Community has considerable resources that we could devote to enacting the spirit of “Ethical Eating”, as defined by the UUA CSAI and by our Community; and
  • WHEREAS, the Board perceives that such a venture could be an important mechanism for turning our congregation’s vision outward, helping to meet significant needs in the Oxford and Hamilton areas, and reinforcing a social justice orientation to our identity in local communities;
  • BE IT RESOLVED THAT the Board of Hopedale Unitarian Universalist Community encourages our congregation to make enactment of the Congregational Study/Action Issue “Ethical Eating” a significant focus of our activities for at least the period April 2009- June 2010. This would include the appointment of a Task Force to coordinate Hopedale Unitarian Universalist Community efforts. We would encourage “Ethical Eating” to be taken up as a significant focus, perhaps one of several, during Sunday services, by adult and children’s Religious Education, by the Green Sanctuary committee, and by our Social Action committee.
