UUCGC, Primary Sponsor of the Immigration Justice Conference and Social Witness

The Unitarian Universalist Council of Greater Cincinnati (UUCGC) is a cooperative organization, made up of five congregations. Each draws members from Hamilton, Butler and Clermont counties in Ohio, Boone, Kenton, and Campbell counties in Kentucky, and from Southeastern Indiana. Cincinnati as a city, has a rich Unitarian and Universalist history.

The Council was established 30 years ago to address issues of housing inequality in the city and to create a judicatory to participate in the Metropolitan Area Religious Council of Cincinnati (MARCC). The Council is the only Unitarian Universalist local denominational organization of its type in the United States.

The mission of the Unitarian Universalist Council of Greater Cincinnati is to help our congregations make liberal religion more fulfilling to their members and to propagate our Unitarian Universalist principles in the greater community. The Council reflects the democratic polity of the denomination at large in its organization and policies. The Unitarian Universalist Council of Greater Cincinnati is committed to creation of a beloved community across the city and suburbs since, in the words of Rev. David O. Rankin, “We believe in the motive force of love which always seeks the welfare of others and never seeks to hurt or destroy.”
