What We Are Doing

  • We Are Entering FAST TimeWe Are Entering FAST Time
    The Pinellas County Commission has backed down from its promise of funds for Affordable Housing for Low Income Families. It has also retarded development of a much needed One-Stop Information Center for dangerous mental health emergencies. It continues giving Pinellas County citizens thousands of life-inhibiting arrest records for misdemeanors by under-utilizing civil citations. These are the three concerns our 40 congregation interfaith coalition is addressing.

Email the UUSP Office if we can put you on our UUSP/FAST contact list.

Glad I’m in ...

Here are our four guests.  UUSC’s partner Suja Karimuddin is our fourth “guest”, and he is one of the many Rohingya people forced to leave Burma out of fear for their lives.
