On December 10, the San Diego Immigrant Rights Consortium handed out their 2018 awards which celebrate work that uplifts their mission to support migrant families. Eight community members, organizations and partners were awarded for their outstanding work around immigrant rights, advocacy, media coverage and more. Our Social Justice Coordinator, Angela Fujii, gratefully accepted an award on behalf of First UU as “Faith Partner of the Year.”
We’re excited to have a newly established Journey Towards Wholeness (JTW) team supporting both the South Bay and Hillcrest campuses of First UU Church of San Diego! The JTW initiative is one that isn’t new to this community. Rather, it’s rooted in decades of efforts by lay leadership within our congregation. Newly re-energized, with an elected core team voted in by the board of trustees in September 2018, the group’s vision continues to be one of radical welcoming—striving for an unending practice of inclusion and intersectional justice for those marginalized. This includes those within our community or those who have yet to find their true home at First UU, and whose voice and truth both warrant and need amplification and support in line with our Unitarian Universalist principles. The team’s mission is to dismantle systems of oppression of all types in ourselves as well as the congregation. We commit to facilitating growth and progress through efforts that will undoubtedly invite vulnerability. Through efforts that ask us all to lean into tough and yet meaningful conversations, we’ll reflect on our own actions, words, and beliefs. By doing so, we can deepen connections and remove barriers to fostering a spirit of true beloved community that allows for a diverse church community aligned to our aspirations.
