The Eno River Unitarian Universalist Fellowship Justice Ministry Council
Statement on Community Policing Policies and the Militarization of the Police
The ERUUF Justice Ministry Council makes this statement out of concerns about local Police Policies, Procedures, and Practices. Our statement is founded upon our Unitarian Universalist Principles to include our commitment to peace, liberty, and justice; the worth and dignity of every person; equity and compassion in human relations; interdependence; and a commitment the democratic process. Our goal is to develop and support a vibrant local community based upon diversity, opportunity, equity, support and protection. The realization of these goals and principles depends, to a considerable extent, on the qualities of our police and judicial systems because it is these institutions that either support or destroy public perceptions of trust, fairness, equity, and respect --- the things that are the glue that hold us together as a society and community.

Sarah spoke to a large community gathering in the sanctuary at ERUUF on Monday evening, October 9, sharing stories of her travels that highlight what ordinary people are doing in their communities to create solutions to issues of racial, economic, and environmental justice.
