The Black Lives of UU Organizing Collective issued two new statements this week in the first we formally endorsed the Movement for Black Lives #Vision4BlackLives Policy Platform. This visionary platform features a set of six demand categories including policy specific recommendations and actions.
In the second statement we address our concerns around Unitarian Universalist responses to recent killings around the country - we say in part:
We feel compelled to urge all Unitarian Universalists and other people of good conscience not to equate the system-wide killing of Black people by police with the killing of police by people unaffiliated with the Movement for Black Lives. Doing so makes life more dangerous for Black people who are already at great risk.
