Wednesday 20th February is United Nations World Day of Social Justice.
To mark the occasion Chief Officer Derek McAuley has released the following statement:
"Unitarians place the highest value on the inherent worth of every person and on the interdependent web of existence. Our individual aspirations for fulfilment are therefore held in tension with those of the community; local, national or global. The pursuit of social justice means challenging those who seek to hijack society for their own interests. Unitarians recognise that power is unequally distributed and can be abused. We work to address issues of injustice in practical ways but this is not enough; political action may be required to address the underlying causes."
