In February of 2011 UUCOC worked on a very special
Social Justice program.

A number of our members, friends, and members of the community participated in the "It Gets Better Project," a campaign started in response to the many suicides of gay teenagers who had been bullied and mistreated.

The community was invited to share their "It Gets Better" stories which were videotaped and are being edited and posted on our UUSocialJustice YouTube Channel as well as on the "It Gets Better" website.

Remember: If you need to talk to someone about these issues, you can always call the Trevor Lifeline Project at 1(866) 488-7386.


The Pledge:

Everyone deserves to be respected for who they are.
I pledge to spread this message to my friends, family and neighbors.
I'll speak up against hate and intolerance whenever I see it, at school and at work.
I'll provide hope for lesbian, gay, bi, trans and other bullied teens by letting them know that "It Gets Better."
