In its first couple of years, the UUYACJ network focused on building community through offering workshops at regional UU young adult gatherings and the annual Unitarian Universalist Association General Assembly. Our second network coordinator was Curtis Murphy, of Ontario, Canada, during 2013-2014. Our third and current network coordinator is Aly Tharp, since September of 2014.
In the Fall of 2014, we adopted a unique and consensus-based model for directly-democratic decision making among young adult members, and shortly thereafter adopted our first continental campaign --- 100 Worship Services for Climate Justice --- as part of the faith-wide climate justice campaign, Commit2Respond. Our involvement in Commit2Respond grew exponentially throughout 2015; we are a sponsoring and leading organization.
In August of 2015, UU Young Adults for Climate Justice participated in and helped to create GROW: Climate Justice ---- the first UU-sponsored skill-building workshop for young adult climate justice activism, by the UU College of Social Justice. Future GROW: Climate Justice trainings are in the planning stages.
In February of 2016, we began a Climate Justice Book Club.
