Our Values

FAMILY

Families are the reason ICUC exists and the driving force behind our organizing. In a world where family, whether biological or chosen, is seldom treated as a priority, ICUC becomes a voice for them.

 

JUSTICE

Within all our traditions, there is commitment to justice. We seek equitable and just opportunities for those most in need. ICUC is a way of putting this belief into action.

 

DIVERSITY

The strength of a community comes from embracing diversity. The wealth of different backgrounds and experiences leads us in creative new directions. We are intentionally building an organization that is diverse in our ethnic, denominational, and economic backgrounds.

 

ACTION

We have a commitment to the belief that decision-making should be by and for the people. We believe in taking responsibility and participating in community life. Our members listen to concerns in their communities and then research, discuss, and plan how issues can be resolved.
