Action Advocates is a group of church members who believe that an important way to put our 7 Unitarian Universalist Principles into action is to make our voices heard by our local, state, and national elected officials. We encourage members and friends to meet with, call, write, or e-mail their legislators to urge them to vote in favor of measures that are consistent with our UU values and to oppose measures that are not.

Your vote is only the beginning. Contact your legislators and tell them what you think. Tell them your values. Tell them what is most important to you. Write to them, call them, or meet with them in person. That’s the way democracy is done.
