Principled Action: Daily Ways to Live the 7 Principles

Principled Action: Daily Ways to Live the 7 Principles

Principled Action is a new social justice initiative at Harmony UU, launched early in 2017. It’s a combination of an online group with occasional in-person meetups, focusing on daily actions we can take to live our 7 UU principles.

This means we’ll be working on social justice, environmental action, knowledge acquisition, and generally trying to make the world a better place. A few examples of what we’ve done so far:

  • Created and mailed 70 handmade Valentines—with themes based on the 7 principles—for local, state, and federal legislators.
  • Posting and acting on Daily Calls to Action, such as unplug your phone overnight to save energy and text the word MEALS to 35350 and General Mills will donate 12 meals to your local food bank.

The great thing is that you can participate as much or as little as you’d like. If you see something that doesn’t resonate with you, wait for the next one. If something is inspiring to you, act on it! Each thing you do will take us one step closer to a better world.

You don’t have to be a member of Harmony UU to be a part of this. You just have to support the seven principles and want to make a difference.
