In the last ten years, Beacon has leaned into our ministry on racial justice.
Building the World We Dream About
Forum with The Rev. Mark Morrison-Reed Under the leadership of Rev. Vanessa Southern, we co-sponsored a lecture by noted UU minister Mark Morrison-Reed on the history of the UUA with respect to African-Americans and Latinos. The talk provided food for thought on how we might become a more multi-cultural congregation and movement.
On September 25, 2016, under the leadership of ministers Rev. Robin Tanner and Rev. Emilie Boggis along with our partnering congregation Fountain Baptist of Summit, we hung two Black Lives Matter banners along the front facade of our building.
