Channing’s Social Action Committee (SAC) enacts the social justice and human rights aspirations of our UUA principles through direct service, advocacy, education and political action.
SAC works to achieve the UU social goals through committee activities and by supporting the efforts of individual members of the congregation. It works to integrate social justice activities into the fabric of Channing’s congregational life and to call attention to local and world issues. It often collaborates with other Channing initiatives, such as Green Congregation, Family Ministry, Interweave and The Learning Center, to achieve mutual goals.
The SAC functions through subcommittees known as Focus Groups, which for the 2017-2018 Church year are as follows:
- Church members cook and serve The Monthly Community Meal for the physical and social health of all participants.
- The Channing congregation contributes to an annual UUSC Guest at Your Table financial collection the during the winter holidays.
