Saturday, May 9: Toxic Tour

In partnership with Communities for a Better Environment, PCU organized a “toxic tour” that visited several locations in the LA-area negatively impacted by environmental pollution, including Huntington Park and Wilmington. Participants heard directly from residents about their experience and had the opportunity to explore how they can be in solidarity with front-line communities around environmental justice. Check out our Facebook page for photos of the event!

We Who Believe in Freedom

Justice Not Jails, a project administered by PCU, has released a 7-part curriculum designed for Christians who want to learn more about the mass incarceration epidemic in the state of California. You can access the materials here.

Thank you to everyone who gave to Progressive Christians Uniting during the month of June.

You all are awesome!

All gifts will be matched and doubled in impact. Every little bit counts towards building faith-rooted, social justice partnerships for racial justice, creation care, and a gospel of interdependence.

We are currently calculating all gifts and will provide an updated total soon!

Saturday, June 13: Freedom Songs

With the help of our co-sponsors, Justice Not Jails organized “Freedom Songs: Reading the Bible With and For the Oppressed,” which took place this past Saturday, June 13 at Ward AME Church in Los Angeles. Participants were led by Rev. James M. Lawson, Jr. and by Rev. Janet Wolf in a transformative and energizing experience as they engaged in an interactive workshop to find the Bible’s message of grace, compassion, and God’s consistent identification with the victims of unjust power. Photos to come!
