Monday Night Meetings - UUCA supports several homelessness advocacy groups by providing a meeting space. 
  • The Anaheim Poverty Task Force advocated for the creation of Orange County's 1st year round shelter & multi service center, Bridges at Kraemer Place. They are now advocating for county funding for enough permanent supportive & affordable housing to meet the needs of people experiencing homelessness. The APTF is an interfaith group supported by Orange County Congregation Community Organization (OCCCO). 
  • The People's Homeless Task Force, which meets from 6-7pm on the Monday before each Anaheim City Council meeting, is a group of Anaheim residents concerned about the dramatic increase of people experiencing homelessness. They are advocating not only for permanent supportive & affordable housing as a long term solution, but also for short term basic services such as potable water, sanitation, and a safe place to sleep for individuals experiencing homelessness.
  • Housing is a Human Right OC, which meets every Monday from 7-8:30pm, is a coalition of organizations and individuals working together to achieve supportive, affordable, and permanent housing for homeless individuals in Orange County.  
Come join us on Tuesdays (schedules vary) at either the Anaheim City Council meetings (5pm, 200 S. Anaheim Blvd.) or the Orange County Board of Supervisors (9:30am, 333 W. Santa Ana Blvd., Santa Ana) as we advocate for meaningful change. You can speak during public comments if you'd like, or just show up in your yellow Standing on the Side of Love t-shirt, available at the UUA Bookstore - www.uuabookstore.org . 

Orange County Board of Supervisors Candidate Forum, May 1, 6:00-8:30pm, Downtown Community Center, 250 E. Center St., Anaheim CA 92805. OC BOS manages billions of your tax dollars. Come hear what the candidates for this elected office have to say about poverty, living wages, housing & homelessness.

Unitarian Universalist Justice Ministry of California 


COLLEGE OF SOCIAL JUSTICE SERVICE OPPORTUNITIES

The Unitarian Universalist College of Social Justice, a joint venture of the UUA and the UUSC, has service and educational opportunities for youth, college students, and adults:
  • Experiential Learning Journeys: Our transformative journeys to Haiti, Mexico, India, and several U.S. locations will introduce you and your congregation to the justice work of UUA and UUSC partners, and help you make the connection to struggles in your own community.
  • Youth Justice Training: We’re adding new trainings each year! Our high school youth gain inspiration through a terrific combination of justice theory and hands-on experience with our partners. This summer we’ll be in Boston, New Orleans, and Seattle, with a daylong intro session at UUA General Assembly in Providence.
  • Global Justice Internships: College-age young adults get powerful, summer-long placements with UUA and UUSC partners around the world and receive lots of support for faith development and vocational discernment. We’ll place 20 young-adult interns this summer!
