An informal committee of people interested in coordinating issues on peace, social justice and environmental sustainability has formed at James Reeb UUC in Madison, WI.

Another long term service project is to go around the weekly Farmer's market and gather donations from the farmers for the shelters. The new group has set up adult RE classes on immigration and racial justice. They have organized and alerted congregation members to events happening around town.
