Unitarian Universalists (UU) are committed to welcoming and affirming people of all abilities.
Nearly 50 million people (1 in 5 of the U.S. population) in the United States have a disability—visible or invisible, public or private. For everyone, whether having a disability or not, the environment in which we live, learn, play, sing, work, meditate, reflect, and pray must feel welcoming in order for everyone to grow and thrive.

Disability Justice Sub-Committee
Chair: Betsy Dalton
Disability Justice works with the Facilities and Finance Committees and others to address issues of accessibility in the sanctuary, the building, and the programs of UUCSC. They have published “A Commitment to Accessibility” statement, as well as organizing our UUCSC accessibility features.
The Disability Justice Sub-committee meets with other committees as needed to respond to accessibility issues as they arise and periodically to explore ways to increase the awareness of disability issues and improve the accessibility at UUCSC for all members and friends with disabilities.
