Black Lives UU acknowledges historic UUA Board support

Today, the UUA Board affirmed support for Black Lives of UU with a motion allocating $300K to address our short term organizing needs, AND a commitment to meeting our long term request for financial support in the amount of $5 million. This moving act of solidarity followed a stirring presentation to the Board by Black Lives of UU Organizing Collective members Leslie Mac and Rev. Carlton E Smith.

We acknowledge those that came before us in the struggle for self determination as Black UUs, and we are overcome with emotion at this historic moment for our faith.
