In October 2016, the UUA Board issued a charge to all Unitarian Universalists, calling us to invest collectively and significantly in the leadership and organizing of Black Unitarian Universalists.

To live into that commitment they asked all congregations to do a service entitled “The Promise and Practice of our Faith” centering Black voices and raising funds for Black Lives of Unitarian Universalism (BLUU). CVUUF held this service on January 14, 2018 in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day. You can see the service at this link: https://cvuuf.org/services/promise-practice-faith/. Our goal was to feature the voices of People of Color and draw attention to the richness in our past and present if we truly live into our multi-cultural, multi-racial, anti-oppressive commitments. We also raised funds for BLUU to meet the matching UUA grant of $10 per member, and have sent our contribution to BLUU.

Thank you for your generosity and participation!  We raised $2000 which will be doubled by a UUA donor! If you did not get an opportunity yet and wish to support BLUU, please know that your dollars will be matched. Kindly write the check to CVUUF with BLUU in the memo-line. Thank you all for your generosity and commitment to dismantling racism wherever we can.
