Will UU kindle the flame to… Light The TXUUJM Justice Chalice?!
When we founded our non-profit, TXUUJM (Texas Unitarian Universalist Justice Ministry), in 2012, our goal was to become a beacon of justice for those making decisions in our state legislature.
At the time, UUs were lamentably unknown in the Capitol. Now we are known, respected and effective in Austin!! In addition, TXUUJM has cultivated meaningful justice partnerships nationally with the UUSC and the UUA.
TXUUJM member congregations submitted their most pressing Social Justice issues, with the overall consensus resulting in TXUUJM selecting the top 5 we will advocate for during the pending 2021 state legislative session.
These Issues are:
We need YOUR help to make sure that our voices are heard and acted upon by our elected officials.
Please consider making a monthly sustaining investment to ensure that our UU social justice issues will continue to be an ever-growing focus of our state. Financial investments in TXUUJM are Tax DEDUCTIBLE!
Our goal is to get 100 more monthly sustaining investors during the Legislative Session which starts January 12th.
Together, our light can shine more brightly and Bend Texas Toward Justice!! Your investment can make that happen!!
THANK YOU !!!
This is part of our larger goal of TXUUJM’s “1,000 Courageous Sustaining UU For Justice”

The monthly recurring investment option is especially helpful to TXUUJM as it spreads our income more evenly throughout the year and allow us to budget and plan with greater certainty.

The greater our aggregate receipts, the more quickly we’ll see our Unitarian Universalist voices and values begin to shape public discourse and policy across our state.
