Chablis Dandridge, born to a 17-year old single mother and raised in Newark, NJ, had many lessons early on about the harsh realities of life. By 18, he had dropped out of school, suffered 4 gunshot wounds, was paralyzed from the waist down, fathered two children, was institutionalized for mental health concerns and found himself living in and out of jail. While in prison, Chablis received a college degree and Paralegal Certification, learned Spanish, focused on prison reform advocacy and community outreach work, and authored 5 books. Today he lives in Charlotte, NC, speaks publicly on human rights and works tirelessly on recidivism and youth reformation programs.

We have a legacy of “deeds not creeds.” Our work for a better world calls us to unexpected places as we harness love’s power...These words from the Justice & Inclusion page of the UUA website remind us of what it means to be fully aware of circumstances in our community and how we might be of service. As our local community agencies ramp up to provide basic needs for all of us in this time crisis, let us expand our tradition of community support as much as possible. In addition to the groups that we already support, individually and collectively, we have listed below a few that have come to our recent attention. This list is also on the Social Action page of our website. If you would like to include other agencies, please let us know.
