The 2017 William Irvine Justice Award Goes to:

UUC’s Board of Trustees and Social Justice Committee are pleased to announce that the 2017 William
Irvine Award goes to Susan Gillies and The Women’s Centre of Calgary!
As the Center celebrates its 20th anniversary and its 20th year with Susan Gillies as Executive Director, UCC celebrates The Women’s Center and its operating philosophy that every person has inherent worth and dignity.
“Every woman needs help at some point in her life,” says Gillies, “and every woman has something she
can help with.” That spirit of reciprocity has helped build a Center with 16 staff supporting 750 volunteers who help more than 8000 women a year meet their needs, from cup of coffee and a chat, to groceries and toiletries, to legal clinics and social service referrals.
Unique, independent, altruistic and pioneering, Susan Gillies and The Women’s Center of Calgary ‘s
contributions honour the spirit of William Irvine’s presence in Calgary.

We are Unitarian Universalists

Unitarians Stand Up for Trans People

When 11 year old Anthony heard "stand up, stand up, people of grace” in an anti-trans rap from an Alberta mom, he was offended. This is not, in his opinion, what religion is for. He invited Unitarians from across Canada to join with him in sending messages to trans kids. And they did!

And here are the folks at the Unitarian Church of Calgary showing their support.

A Unitarian Universalist and Evangelical Christian on a Plane

What do Unitarians believe if we don't follow one set of doctrines or religious teachings? Here is a simple, heartwarming, and eloquent story that will open your eyes to the Unitarian Universalist tradition - a religion that is spiritual, principled, and welcoming to all beliefs, colours, creeds, and gender orientations.
