UUCS and Spokane Alliance

In 2005, the UUCS joined the Spokane Alliance, a non-partisan and non-profit alliance of congregations, unions, school and community groups in Spokane County dedicated to making Spokane a better place for all. Using consensus, we work toward these three main goals:

  • Strengthen each member organization.
  • Develop local leadership
  • Act in the public arena for the common good

Our Mission 

The mission of the UUCS Spokane Alliance Team is to strengthen the UUCS community by supporting the Spokane Alliance in promoting social justice, developing community leaders and by encouraging a relational culture within our congregation.  Some of the ways the Spokane Alliance Team team will carry out this mission are by encouraging congregants to attend leadership training, informing congregants about public meetings, hearings and other gathering that promote a stronger, more just community.  As well as promoting a greater understanding of the work of the Spokane Alliance.

The relational meeting, a face-to-face, one-to-one encounter,
-explores the possibility of a public relationship with another person.
-is the glue that brings people together and allows them to embrace the tension of living between the world-as-it-is and the world-as-it-should-be, and
-is a forum in which we meet each other to create connection.

We encourage relational meetings because we are a people defined by what we do.
