While UUCFM and the Social Justice committee have utilized many ways of welcoming diversity and supporting racial justice, the shocking death of George Floyd and the subsequent protests inspired our congregation to install a visible symbol of support for the Black Lives Matter movement.
First, we reached out to the congregation for feedback through our newsletter. We received overwhelming support. Next, we sought out a black-owned business and found a fabulous company which is not only creating the sign but installing it for us. Joe is the owner of All Around Promotions. He worked with us to help choose the perfect material for our sign and worked with us to install it.
We all agree that the perfect place for the banner is on top of the UUCFM sign we already have at the corner of our beautiful campus and the very busy Daniels Boulevard. It is our hope that the surrounding community will support and be inspired by our banner.
