Our Impact

Our Unitarian Universalist faith fiercely and unequivocally affirms all people’s inherent worth and dignity. When human and civil rights are threatened, our faith compels us to take liberatory action.

 

Action Update

Here are some ways Foothills has shown up for justice in 2022:

  • Over 30 kids and parents engaged with True You, our group for gender-expansive, trans, nonbinary kids and their families, and are receiving support, resources, connection, and affirmation. 
  • Under the leadership of our Climate Justice Ministry, we have committed to Green Sanctuary 2030, a multi-year program that will engage the Foothills congregation in personal and community actions that focus on climate justice, resilience, and mitigation strategies honoring the interconnected web of life. 
  • Our newly formed Reproductive Justice Team of 30 Foothills members has already launched a wide variety of initiatives, including expanding OWL, our comprehensive sexual education program, forming an interfaith spiritual care program to companion people seeking services at Planned Parenthood, and directly supporting the efforts of UU congregations in more conservative areas, such as Grand Junction, Colorado, and Casper and Cheyenne, Wyoming. 
  • We continue our support for immigrants through our partnership with ISAAC and our Sanctuary Everywhere Program, which accompanies asylum seekers as they build a new life in Northern Colorado. 
  • We continue our commitment to housing justice through our service with Faith Family Hospitality and Habitat for Humanity and our commitment to food security through our twice-monthly Mobile Food Pantry. 
  • We are working closely with our fiscal sponsoree, The BIPOC Alliance, to create spaces of belonging and connection for the Fort Collins LGBT+ / two-spirit BIPOC community.

From Green Sanctuary to Be More Gay to reproductive rights, we are gearing up to expand our justice work in 2023. But first, we need to secure the funds to sustain our current programs.

No one can change the future all alone. No one person can show up for everything everywhere. But together, one act at a time, we can bend the arc of the universe toward justice. Today, we ask you to act by making your 2023 pledge to financially support Foothills. When you pledge, you know you are supporting the future of a collective movement toward liberation for all – you are playing a part in the bend toward justice.
