Social Responsibility Coalition

 

The Social Responsibility Coalition (SRC) seeks to raise awareness and promote action among church members and friends on society’s major social, environmental and economic issues.

We offer information and an opportunity to respond on these issues, sometimes in concert with others and always in a manner consistent with the seven principles of the Unitarian-Universalist movement.

Each month, the SRC identifies a particular issue and proposes an “action of the month.” An article on the subject appears in the church newsletter. Each Sunday during the month, fuller details on the issue are available at the SRC display shelf in the foyer of the church.

As an example:

Responding to the B.C. government’s survey on electoral reform, Fair Vote Canada’s Terry Dance Bennink asks Please read this summary before you take the government survey.” (PDF)  Print this and keep it beside your computer as you respond to the survey.

Fair Vote Canada ’s full report can be found at http://www.fairvote.ca/bc-government-consultation-survey-guide/  Below is a summary. Print this of and keep it beside your computer as you respond to the survey.

The Coalition is made up of a variety of Teams covering many areas of concern – Choices in Dying, Environmental Action Team (EAT)Healing Our World (HOW), LifelinePoverty and Diversity. They are listed on the right. There is always room for more Teams and we welcome your ideas and energy.

Generally the SRC meets on the second Tuesday of the month, at 1:30 p.m., in the Farmhouse Common Room but please confirm by email
