Black Lives Matter
...because we at First Unitarian recognize that historically and currently, Black Lives have not mattered as much as white lives. The phrase does not mean "only" black lives matter. It means that it's time that we stand in solidarity with African American people to undo the systemic injustices that hold them back from true equality.

One of the actions taken by First Unitarian is that we stand in vigil outside our church the second Sunday of the month after church. Click on the header to learn more about this action.
