UU Young Adults for Climate Justice

UU Young Adults for Climate Justice is a diverse network of UU activists aged 18 to 35 who support each other in engaging in direct action campaigns, leading worship services, educating ourselves and the wider UU world, mobilizing and organizing UUs for the work of climate justice, and more.


More about the network

Launched in 2012, UUYACJ is made up of a core team of committed leaders plus a wide-ranging membership, utilizing a consensus-based model for directly-democratic decision making. We’ve organized trainings and workshops on climate justice, a book club, and a climate justice worship services campaign. Learn more!

Stories from members

UUYACJ members have engaged in direct action campaigns (from blocking pipelines and arctic drilling operations to stopping the auction of oil and gas leases), led trainings and worship services, and supported frontline struggles from Standing Rock to the United Nations. Get inspired by our stories!







Political Education & Book Club

Young adults are invited to participate in regular Political Education & Book Club discussions, held regularly online. We’ll read contemporary and historical texts, nonfiction and fiction, and dive deep into how these ideas can inform our spiritually grounded work for collective liberation. Find out more and sign up for the next discussion!

100 services campaign

In late 2014 UUYACJ committed to leading 100 climate justice services in UU congregations and beyond, and we are more than halfway to our goal! Younger generations will be more impacted by climate change than older generations, so our leadership on climate justice is crucial.
