Justice for Palestine-Israel:
Millions of Palestinians live under Israel’s system of apartheid, and at the heart of this system is the Palestinian experience of being pushed out of their family homes and off of their ancestral lands.


For over 73 years, Israel has created and maintained laws, policies, and practices that deliberately oppress Palestinians. This system works to ensure Jewish Israeli domination across Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories (OPT) and affects Palestinian refugees as well.  

The system is enforced by acts such as forcible transfer, drastic movement restrictions and fragmentation of communities, unlawful killings, arbitrary detention and torture, separation of families, and the denial of nationality and citizenship rights to Palestinians.   

No First Use of Nuclear Weapons:
With the possibility of a direct war between 2 nuclear armed states looming, it is more imperative than ever that the U.S. adpt a “no first use” policy…meanning that it will be official policy NOT to launch a nuclear strike unless attacked first.
Now more than ever, we need to change our nuclear weapons policies. Instead of fulfilling obligations under the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty to move in good faith toward eliminating our nuclear arsenal, the U.S. and other nuclear nations are buliding new, enhanced weapons.  Meanwhile climate chaos is heightening global tensions…
Endore Back from the Brink’s effort to insist on a change in U.S. Policy!
Pathway to Citzenship: 
Immgraints need the permanency and stability of a pathway to citizenship. 
The public widely supports this solution, and it’s time for Congress to follow through.  There is only one path forward now and it depends of Congressional courage and the President’s leadership.  Join us in calling on Congress to swiftly pass a pathway to citizenship for immigrant youth in the aftermath of the 5th Circuit’s ruling last October.
Stop Assault Weapons Sales:
2024 has again been a year of mass violence in the U.S., with more and more weapons in the hands of more and more people.  These don’t make us safer–but more fearful, less secure and justifiably angry.
Weapons of war don’t belong in civilianj hands.  We need federal action to restrict the sale of assault weapons (like those used in Nashville, Newtown, Orlando and Pittsburg)–and to keep our communities safe.  Urge Congress to act quickly to pass the Assault Weapons Ban of 2023.
UCC Justice & Peace Network:
Our United Church of Christ has a lively and engaged “Justice & Peace Network” offering a wide range of opportunities for advocacy and online action.  Check out that regularly updated list of activities below–and sign up there for weekly updates from the UCC!
End Gender-Based Violence:
First passed in 1994, VAWA was enacted to ensure protection against domestic and sexual fiolence, and abuse.  Call on the Senate to reauthorize the Violence Against Women Act.
End of Life Options Act in NH:

As the NH End of Life Options Act (HB 1283) moves to the State Senate, we can make a difference.  If passed, the act would allow residents of NH (like those in Maine and Vermont) to access medical aid in dying.  Mary James asks us to take five minutes to support the Act.  A very good summary of the bill is available at  Or you can go directly to submit your support online at the LINK HERE.

Equity and Education in NH:

The NH Council of Churches is calling us us to be active disruptors of white supremacy, active participants in the work of anti-racism, and ready to come alongside our teachers, school boards, and local governments.

To that end, we are asking individuals and congregations across NH to take a faithful pledge for equity and education.
