Economic systems determine how wealth and resources are distributed within a society and are literally a matter of life and death.

Recognizing that we live in a world where systems allow for an unsustainable gap between the wealthy and the poor, CUCC adopted an Economic Justice Covenant in June of 2012 stating that we would strive to work for a world where love, justice and mercy prevail and God's abundance is shared. 

We agreed to:

  • Examine our collective and individual life styles and our stewardship of creation.
  • Educate ourselves as to the causes of economic injustice and the forces that perpetuate it.
  • Engage in economic and political actions that are consistent with our moral values.
  • The Economic Justice Task Force helps to implement the Covenant by planning educational opportunities, working to remove barriers that prevent people from leading secure lives, and collaborating with other organizations working toward greater economic justice.
