Beacon has a long-term commitment to racial justice and exploring the effects of white privilege and white supremacy on local and national levels. Our Unitarian Universalist faith CALLS us to say
that black lives matter.
Our Racial Justice Team’s work is guided by our congregational resolution on Black Lives Matter.
Want to explore more? Connect with our Racial Justice Team led by Ellie Muska and Patti Whelan. We are currently focused in a congregational self-study around moving toward an anti-racist institution. We also raised a Black Lives Matter banner in partnership with Fountain Baptist Church in Summit.
Chancellor Ave School Partnership
In addition to the Beyond the Banner Team, we are also engaged in racial justice by seeking to foster education equity through our partnership with Chancellor Ave, an elementary school in Irvington.
Irvington is only two towns east of our congregation.
We have several programs at Chancellor Ave including:
*sponsor a scholar
*family game nights
