UUA CELEBRATES PARTNERSHIP FOR BLUU HARBORS AND HAVENS
As Unitarian Universalists, we affirm the inherent worth and dignity of all people as a core principle of our faith. Yet the dignity and worth of Black lives is under direct threat in every community from disproportionate infections from COVID-19, from police violence, from economic insecurity and collective trauma. The devaluing of black lives is not new – it has been ingrained in our country’s history for over 400 years. The Unitarian Universalist Association has committed to dismantling white supremacy and patriarchy inside our faith and in the wider world, which has included supporting the Black Lives Matter movement, working expand sanctuary and decriminalize Black and brown, immigrant and Indigenous communities, flanking movement organizing to end the oppressive systems of policing, mass incarceration and detention, and now calling on UU’s to pursue alternatives to contacting the police support the wider push to defund the police and invest in Black communities. And yet there is still so much more to do.
