Defenders of Democracy
Contact: Matt Zencey Email: democracy
Mission: To help members put UU values into action by pressing public officials to support progressive policies, constitutional principles, and democratic norms.
In the aftermath of the last election, there were many people in our congregation who were concerned about the direction the country is headed and wanted to find a better way forward. We have three areas of focus:
Health Care – Many Americans are poised to lose their coverage.
Environment – Much of the progress of the last 30 years is in danger.
Constitutional Principles – The freedoms, rule of law, tolerance, and respect for diversity that are embodied in our country’s Constitution and our UU tradition are threatened.
We find purpose in organizing contact with our legislative leaders and in joining other like-minded groups in Chester County for lobbying, rallies and marches to promote these core ideas.
