Beacon has a long-term commitment to racial justice and exploring the effects of white privilege on local and national levels. Our Unitarian Universalist faith CALLS us to say that black lives matter.
Our Racial Justice Task Force’s goals are to promote racial justice awareness in our congregation and in the wider Summit community through exposure to both historical and current racial injustices and to lead the way for Beacon toward a more diverse, multiracial congregation.
