Social Justice Programmatic Restructuring

The Social Justice Program is restructuring based on a reduction in staffing.  

On Sunday, April 22, Michael Schuler, Erich Pitcher, and Karen Gustafson hosted a Social Justice Forum to discuss what the Social Justice Program will look like when there is not a dedicated staff person.The reduction in staffing is effective August 19, 2012. 

On Sunday, April 22, the group came to consensus around a new programmatic model that is called the "Hybrid Model." This means that through a combination of staff and member support, the Social Justice Program will move forward.

With the impending reduction of staffing in the Social Justice Program, FUS needs to address at least two issues

1. Big Picture or Systemic Issues that have existed for many years

2. Nuts and Bolts or Operational Issues that need to addressed quickly to ensure program viability for the 2012-2013 Church Year.

As you have probably sensed this is a time of financial difficulty and I am confident that through this adversity, we will grow, crystallize our values, and take progressive action.
