Bend Texas Toward Justice. Give to TXUUJM.
Why give to TXUUJM? Lives are at stake in issues of racial and economic justice, healthcare access, economic justice, voting rights, and so much more. TXUUJM is our state action network, the only group dedicated to organizing and mobilizing UUs statewide, to respond to the needs of frontline partners and our own communities. Please support the work!

Michelle LaGrave and Katy Carpman, director of religious education, after TXUUJM Sunday there in August 2022. Audrey served as lay worship leader for the service and continued in relationship with our organization, inspiring and making a lasting impression on everyone she met.
ABOUT AUDREY GALE HALL & THIS FUND: The Texas Unitarian Universalist Justice Ministry community deeply grieves the death of Audrey Gale Hall, beautiful friend, anti-racism activist, transgender UU young adult, and recent staff or member of three TXUUJM congregations: Horizon UU in Carrollton, Emerson UU Church in Houston, and First UU Church of Houston. We send our sympathy to those congregations and all of Audrey’s family and friends. Audrey was and is beloved by many, including TXUUJM Board members and Executive Director. We are heartbroken to lose her light, her smile, her way of being, thinking, considering, and connecting. We lament that we will not see our dreams for greater liberation work come to fruition with her here in person. And from that grief, we establish this memorial fund and rededicate ourselves to the spiritually grounded justice movement that Audrey was committed to co-creating.
