Black Lives Matter and Unitarian Universalism
Together with nearly 700 Unitarian Universalist congregations in May, ERUUF offered Sunday services (service descriptions here) and programs in support of dismantling racism and the system of white supremacy that puts the lives of Black and Brown people in harm’s way, and in celebration of the love and courage People of Color have created in response and resistance.
