Black Lives Matter



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.

Testimonials From Members - Why I Became A Unitarian Universalist

Antoinette Brown Blackwell (1825-1921), Unitarian minister.
“Throughout my life, I have addressed issues such as slavery abolition, temperance, and women's rights. In 1902, I helped found the Unitarian Society of Elizabeth, NJ, and served as its minister. In 1920, at age 95, I was the only participant from the 1850 Women's Rights Convention, in Worcester, MA, to see the passage of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution, giving women the right to vote.”

Peggy Eisenberg
“This is a church that is a welcoming congregation, active in social justice issues, and works to combat racism, sexism, and classism. Is it really a church? ... My husband, Steve, and I came to UUCFM a couple years ago. We have been here ever since. I realized that I was a UU without knowing it! I have finally found my spiritual home.”
