Racial Justice and Anti-Racism
Recognition of “the inherent worth and dignity of every person” is the first principle of Unitarian Universalism, and the congregation of MLUC recently voted to adopt an eighth principle which covenants to “affirm and promote journeying toward spiritual wholeness by working to build a diverse multicultural Beloved Community by our actions that accountably dismantle racism and other oppressions in ourselves and our institutions.”
We recognize that the work to end the suffering caused by racism begins with ourselves and our community.
Recent events include:

In April members joined a half day online consultation that introduced the 8th Principle and offered new frameworks for building a culture of inclusion.
