Social Justice Activities

Little River United Church of Christ, founded as an integrated congregation during the segregated 1950's, is continuing its tradition of standing against the injustices of systemic racism.

Here are some of our activities:

Racial Justice Coalition

Meets the First Sunday of Every Month in Room 8 (11:15 am - 12:45 pm)

The Racial Justice Coalition discusses current racial justice issues, including the school-to-prison pipeline, restorative justice, mass incarceration, treatment of inmates, and solitary confinement, and shares information across efforts. Everyone who is interested in working for racial justice is invited to attend. Please contact This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Multiracial Multicultural Church Listening Sessions

Meets August 20, October 22, November 19, and January 7 in Room 8 (11:15 am)

The Board of Outreach and Social Justice and a sub-group, the Racial Justice Coalition, have begun exploratory conversations about Little River UCC becoming a multiracial/multicultural church. These listening sessions are an opportunity for the members of the congregation to discuss the process and ask questions, make suggestions, and more. The official UCC Multiracial Multicultural Pronouncement can be found here: http://www.ucc.org/justice_multiracial-multicultural_pronouncement.

Lifelines to Solitary

Meets irregularly (approximately 2-3 times a year)

"Lifelines" is a prison correspondence program designed to reach people who are or have been in solitary confinement. LRUCC members are paired with pen pals in prisons across the U.S. and write letters monthly. It is conducted in partnership with Interfaith Action for Human Rights and Solitary Watch.
