To Bear Witness

Business Resolution

WHEREAS, the Commission on Religion and Race has from its inception called upon Unitarians and Universalists to bear witness to their concern for racial justice at all times and in all possible situations; and

WHEREAS, in view of the fact that James Reeb was deeply engaged in the life of this city and that one of his major concerns was to erase the barriers of segregation that now exist within the Boston school system; and

WHEREAS, the School Committee of Boston has refused to recognize and to ameliorate the existence of de facto segregation in these schools; and

WHEREAS, the Reverend Reeb was an aggrieved parent and before his death a sponsor of the case against the School Committee that has been brought before the Supreme Court of the State;

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED: That Unitarian Universalists here assembled recess at 11:30 today to march and stand silent witness before the School Committee headquarters in James Reeb's memory and in support of the goals for which he worked.
