Social Justice Team

The Social Issues Team focuses on a full array of equity and human rights concerns.  Issues of concern for this Team range from economic equality, racial and ethnic equity, immigration issues, women’s rights, LGBTQ issues, and everything in between.  If you are concerned about the direction our country has taken with regard to social justice and equity, this is the Team with which you will identify.  Like all UKAN Teams, members learn about these diverse concerns, share ideas, educate the UKAN membership and our community, and propose Calls to Action for their Team and for UKAN.

Take Action!
