Unitarian Universalists have a legacy of “deeds not creeds.” Our work for a better world calls us to unexpected places as we harness love’s power to stop oppression. From grassroots community organizing to interfaith state, national, and corporate advocacy; in protest marches, prayer vigils, and press conferences; in homeless shelters and in prisons, Unitarian Universalists put our faith into action.

Social justice is an important part of our mission and identity at All Souls. Our members are passionate about the environment, LGBTQ rights, immigration, women’s rights, anti-racism and many additional issues.

As a congregation, we:

• Participate annually in Sioux Falls Pride

• Serve twice yearly at The Banquet, a community food ministry

• Created and continue to engage with and educate the community through our Journey Toward Justice campaign focused on raising awareness and working toward justice for Native Americans

• Donate a percentage of the weekly collection plate proceeds to local nonprofits in need

Recently, All Souls members and friends have been active in:

• Supporting the protests against the Dakota Access Pipeline in nearby North Dakota

• Advocating for transgender rights

• Black Lives Matter and Native Lives Matter protests

• Pro-choice and women’s reproductive rights efforts

• Efforts around Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women (MMIW)

• Education and activism on settler colonialism

• Anti-death-penalty work

• Creating South Dakotans Against Racism and a local Showing up for Racial Justice chapter
