Social Justice

The Social Justice Program leads, supports, and coordinates social justice endeavors of First Parish

Our Approach

We provide opportunities to change systems to promote justice; help relieve the suffering rooted in oppression and inequity; support one another’s spiritual development and civic engagement through education, action, and advocacy; give voice to congregants; bear witness; and provide challenge, hope, and inspiration
