UUPLAN logoWe are Unitarian Universalists working together in common cause to embrace, articulate, and advocate for all goals of social and environmental justice. We come from all parts of the state, all walks of life, and we each bring our passions in service of a just and peaceful world. We leverage the commitment and skills of over 6,000 Unitarian Universalists in Pennsylvania to raise a loud, effective voice in Harrisburg.

We speak as people of faith to counter the religious extremism and proclaim social compassion and justice. Whenever possible we work in collaboration with other advocacy organizations of like mind and with grassroots constituencies to more effectively shape the direction of public policy in Pennsylvania.

We focus our energies on Anti-Mass Incarceration, Economic Justice, Reproductive Justice, Environmental Justice, Immigration Justice, and LGBT Justice.

Alternate Spring Break at Allegheny UU

Posted by on May 14, 2016 in News | Comments Off on Alternate Spring Break at Allegheny UU

During March and April we hosted Alternate Spring Break groups from Vanderbilt University and the University of Delaware. Unitarian House was home base and students spent the week doing community service projects on the North Side and around the city, at agencies including Gwen’s Girls, New Voices Pittsburgh, The Pittsburgh Project, and Habitat for Humanity. This was our fourth year supporting VandyASB and first with UDaB! Thank you to the Allegheny YMCA which provided showers and to YA-RISE which hosted pizza socials both weeks.

Know of a group looking for an urban community service experience? Hook them up with Allegheny UU.

Winter Weather Plan: We’ll be Open!

Posted by on Jan 19, 2016 in News | Comments Off on Winter Weather Plan: We’ll be Open!

With a wintry forecast this weekend we want to remind everyone that we gather each Sunday regardless of weather for a 10:30am worship service. That means if you can get here, we’ll be here! If you long for the warmth of community, we’ll be here. If you need to sing, we’ll be here. If you Openhave a joy or sorrow on your heart or mind that you need to share, we’ll be here. If you live in the neighborhood and can’t get somewhere else, we’ll be here. If the weather is severe enough that speakers, worship hosts, musicians, etc can’t make it, then we may all need to be flexible and the service format may be a little different. During Pittsburgh’s February 2010 snowmageddon we had a few intimate fireside services in the Emerson Room. But we’ll strive to offer a meaningful spiritual experience for anyone who does attend. Your safety is the most important thing – evaluate the conditions and your trip to and from the North Side. We realize that bad roads, or cold temps, or a threatening forecast may keep you away. We will miss you but we’ll understand if you stay home.

Hope to see you at Allegheny this and every Sunday!
Allegheny Worship Ministry
