Where would you like to commit your energies?
Some of the many current programs you could join:
Ceasefire Walks – walk with us Friday nights in the “Iron Triangle” of Richmond, carrying signs to stop the violence in this high-crime area. We support the neighborhood and build community with others on the walk and those we meet along the way. See list of Justice Events for details about the next walk.
Read Aloud Volunteer Program – read to two kindergarteners, 1st or 2nd graders once a week for the school year. The more readers, the more students participate. Readers and students love this time together!
Greater Richmond Interfaith Program (GRIP) – join other UUCBers to prepare and serve lunch or dinner once a month to 200 people at the GRIP Souper Center.
Writer Coach Connection – help 8th graders and high schoolers with their writing throughout the year.
CCISCO – “Contra Costa Interfaith Supporting Community Organization helps everyday people win extraordinary victories by providing a vehicle for them to speak, act and engage in the public arena. We believe in the power of relationships and that by acting together on our common values, we can imagine and create a more just, equitable and inclusive world.” UUCB is one of 20 congregations participating in this multi-racial, multi-generational, interfaith federation representing 38,000 families across our region. CCISCO is a member of the national PICO network.
