TXUUJM seeks to prioritize leadership and perspectives of people who are directly impacted by the issues of our work. The five 2020-22 issue areas are racial justice, environmental justice, healthcare access, economic justice, and voting rights, which include work for LGBTQIA+ rights (including support for trans/nonbinary kids and their families), gender justice, immigration rights, reproductive justice, and decarceration.

The work of TXUUJM is grounded in our Eight Principles of Unitarian Universalism. We affirm and promote:

  • The inherent worth and dignity of every person;
  • Justice, equity and compassion in human relations;
  • ​Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our Congregations;
  • A free and responsible search for truth and meaning;
  • The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large;
  • The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all;
  • ​Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part. 
  • working to build a diverse multicultural Beloved Community by our actions that accountably dismantle racism and other oppressions in ourselves and our institutions.
