Get Involved

Everyone has a skill to bring to our table. You can write a letter,  sign a petition, advocate for those without a voice, tutor students — there are so many ways to be part of our efforts.  Side with Love with us!

Want to get involved? Have an idea for a project? Email the Social Justice Council at socialjusticecouncil@bvuuf.org and let’s talk.

Here are ongoing service actions you can join:

CROP Walk

We have walked as a team in the CROP Hunger Walk for 16 years, raising  over $55,000 to help alleviate hunger. The event happens in October every year.  Contact socialjusticecouncil@bvuuf.org if you are interested in forming a team.  

Boulder Shelter for the Homeless

Since March 2007 we have helped prepare and serve dinner at the Boulder Shelter for the Homeless on the third Wednesday of each month. It’s a direct way to interact with and help people in need. This opportunity is currently on hold due to the pandemic. Learn more.

Boulder Valley Community Action Network (BVCAN)

BVCAN works with Together Colorado, a statewide advocacy group, on diverse projects such as medical insurance for children in Boulder County, immigration reform and action, and working to increase access mental health services. We are a part of the newly formed Together Colorado Boulder County Coalition which is currently working on housing for low-income people. For more information, please contact socialjusticecouncil@bvuuf.org.

Emergency Family Assistance Association

Our congregation donates supplies and money from our  half-plate offering  to this Boulder non-profit.  In December, BVUUF collects needed items for EFAA .

I Have A Dream

Through half-plate offerings, the Fellowship supports the I Have a Dream (IHAD) program which provides academic aid to students from elementary grades through high school. In addition, individual Fellowship members provide financial support as well as tutoring in Lafayette schools. Training is provided by IHAD.

Unitarian Universalist Service Committee (UUSC)

Our congregation supports the UUSC with donations, the sale of holiday cards and Equal Exchange products, and participation in the Guest at Your Table donation boxes during the holiday season. Members and friends support the projects of the UUSC through letter writing and signing petitions.

Interfaith AIDS Coalition (IAC)

We are members of the Interfaith Aids Coalition, a program of the  Boulder County Aids Project. We hold annual food drives for BCAP, including an Easter can hunt, and donate through our half-plate offerings.  Several members directly volunteer with BCAP.
