Social Justice Task Forces
The 2012-2013 proposed Social Justice Task Forces are listed below. We will also continue to support the social justice work of our partners ESTHER (the Fox Valley's interfaith social justice network) and the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee (UUSC) . All Fellowship members and friends are warmly invited to get involved with any of these Social Justice activities that will do your heart good and fit in your life.
