PCU’s New Mission Statement

Our Board of Directors met for a day-long retreat and came out with an exciting revamp of our Mission Statement: Progressive Christians Uniting engages people and communities to embody Jesus’ way of compassion and justice for our world.

A Month of Reflection and Action on Mass Incarceration

Thank you to everybody who attended the George Marshall presentation at First Congregational Church Pasadena. We had a large, lively and engaged group. Check back soon to view photos from the event.

Spirited Justice Advocates Hangout

Thank you to everybody who made it to our Sept. 23 event for emerging activists in the LA region. We had a lovely evening with good conversation and were able to learn useful details about hopes we have for our world and ways faith communities (and nonprofits) can respond.

Ties That Bind

Justice Not Jails is asking that, during the month of October, faith communities focus on  the racism and waste of human beings in our criminal justice system. There are many ways that you and your congregation can get involved. Click here to visit the Justice Not Jails website and learn more.

Solidarity on Climate Change

September 20 was LA' solidarity march for stopping climate change along with hundreds of others marches around the country and world. While there were over 310,000 in NYC, there were at least a few thousand scattered along a two-mile stretch of our Wilshire Boulevard. Thanks to those who came!

Proposition 47 Organizing

This November's Prop. 47, endorsed by PCU, will have a major effect in undermining the criminalization of people in California while funding programs of prevention. If your community, small group, network of friends, or congregation would like to know more about how you can help make this a reality, contact PCU today on volunteer training.
