Banners Show Nationwide UU Support for Black Lives Matter Movement

People stand below a banner displaying the phrase "Black Lives Matter"

Check out the many ways UUs have displayed Black Lives Matter banners at our congregations.

Unitarian Universalists (UUs) are exploring how to visibly show our support for the Movement for Black Lives—through community partnerships, education, social justice actions, and more. In February 2015, Leslie Mac, founder of Ferguson Response Network and a member of the Organizing Collective of Black Lives UU, urged UU congregations to make our support visible by displaying Black Lives Matter banners. We encourage congregations to further their commitment and suggest tips for engaging with negative responses.
