About Other Local Initiatives

Kennebec Valley Organization (KVO) is a consortium of religious organizations, union locals and social service agencies that gather to identify community needs and design strategies to effect public policy decisions addressing those needs. UUCC has been actively involved with KVO, and our currently focus has been on maintaining and strengthening services to senior citizens throughout Kennebec Valley.

Economic/Worker Justice. In the spring of 2011 the UUCC Board of Trustees voted to be a public ally for issues of worker rights justice. There is no identified contact person at this time. If you are interested in leading in this area contact Rev. Carie Johnsen. Information regarding particular events or advocacy work will be found in the Flaming Chalice.

Family Violence Project. The congregation supports the mission of preventative education and helping families dealing with abuse and violence through gifts during the holiday season.
