Escalating Inequality involves not only economic injustice, but mass incarceration, injustice to immigrants, unequal treatment of black and brown members of our communities, voter suppression, and attacks on women's rights, workers' rights and the rights of the LGBTQ community.
The Women's March on Washington January 21, 2017 and Sister Marches in cities all over the country will be powerful non-violent displays of support by hundreds of thousands of people that women's rights are human rights, regardless of a woman's ethnicity, religion, immigration status, sexual identity, gender expression, economic status, age or disability.
"Escalating Inequality" is the Congregational Study Action Issue (CSAI) for 2014-2018, now in its last two years of work. See detailed information, resources and comprehensive study guide here: http://www.uua.org/economic/escalatinginequality
