Unitarian Universalists believe that every person is sacred and and that there is an interdependent web of all existence. When one part of the web is torn or injured, all other parts are injured, and the web needs to be restored. We have a passion for making our world a better place for all. At UUP we try to act with courage to improve ourselves, our community, our environment, and the social and political system in which we live.

Humane Treatment of Animals
Habitat Loss and Biodiversity
