Our social justice ministry is core to Unitarian Universalism.
Our chalice, the symbol of our faith, was born out of the work of Unitarians during WWII who helped to save Jews and others from the Holocaust.
Unitarian Universalists are woven throughout the fabric of American history by a common thread of dedication to public service. This includes such men and women as: Frances Ellen Watkins Harper, Clara Barton, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry David Thoreau, Albert Schweitzer; Rachel Carson, Melissa Harris-Perry and Pete Seeger!
At Beacon, we strive to build on this tradition within our walls through radical inclusion as well as in our greater community.
We publish a weekly social justice alert. It includes a short reflection from Rev. Robin and community engagement opportunities. To receive the alert, simply email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We focus in three areas: climate activism, racial justice and immigrant justice. Check out the pages here to learn more. There are all sorts of ways to be healing the world. Come join us.
