Share the Plate is headed by the Community Action Committee.
Congregation-Based Community Organizing (also called Faith-Based, Broad-Based, or sometimes Institution-Based) is a movement that seeks to establish interfaith, cross-class, multiethnic and multiracial grassroots organizations for purposes of increasing social integration and power in civil society and working for social improvement. There are five major national networks of congregation-based community organizations (CBCOs): local interfaith organizations that work for civic, regional, and state-wide social change, building power and creating justice at local, state, and national levels. Almost 200 Unitarian Universalists congregations are part of CBCOs.
