We are a group of diverse interests whose focus is Social Justice as it relates to our Unitarian Principals. We seek to engage our congregation and the greater community in issues that pursue justice and equality for all people and our environment. We are advocates in clean water and water justice, women’s health and equality, fair wage, immigration, equitable healthcare for all, hunger, poverty, Black Lives Matter, Me Too Movement, education, gun violence and LGBTQ issues.
Upcoming Events Stay tuned to this space for the latest in NWUU social, political involvement. All events, unless otherwise noted, take place at Northwest UU Church, and are open to all. Be assured that we are continuing our work in this time of social distancing.
The 8th Principle Project The Black Lives of UU (BLUU) Organizing Collective encourages all Unitarian Universalists to advocate for the formal adoption of an 8th principle which would articulate a commitment to the dismantling of white supremacy within the stated principles of our faith.

Southfield Unity Day - Kneel to HealSunday, June 14 at 2:00 pm In cooperation with Urban Unity CDC, the City of Southfield and the Southfield Police Department are sponsoring a SOUTHFIELD UNITY DAY - KNEEL TO HEAL on Flag Day, Sunday, June 14th from 2 to 4 pm along Evergreen Road between Ten Mile and Eleven Mile Roads. NWUU members will gather on the South side of Evergreen, close to 10 Mile.
This event is a time for Southfield residents to express their sorrow, pain and angst over police officers who have employed excessive and deadly force, systemic racism, voter suppression, lack of equal pay, fair housing, equal opportunity and protection under the law.
We will ask participants to stand six feet apart along Evergreen Road to form a human chain between Ten and Eleven Mile. At 3:15 pm we will ask participants to kneel for eight minutes and forty-six seconds to honor the life of George Floyd.
Participants should park in either the north or south Civic Center lots or in the auxiliary parking lot across at the orange SFLD letters on the lawn of City Hall. Participants are asked to wear face masks and employ social distancing - standing six feet apart from others on the human chain.
