Albany Unitarian Universalist (Albany UU) commits to support Black Lives Matter. This position is best expressed by the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) first principle: The inherent worth and dignity of every person, and the second: Justice equity and compassion in human relations.
Systemic racism and the system of white supremacy inflict incalculable damage to Black communities, families, and individuals. Violence and unequal treatment under the law, at every juncture in our society, are responsible for the devastation incurred by Black communities. The effects can be experienced by everyone. White supremacy involves historic and current, social, economic, and criminal justice actions small and large.
Albany UU firmly sides in solidarity with Black People and concerned, outraged others united under the Black Lives Matter banner. As a predominantly white congregation, we also commit to be reflective and soul-searching about racism, the system of white supremacy, and white privilege individually and within our congregation. We commit to sharing space and resources for anti-racism work. We are committed to making our congregation a safe, welcoming and inclusive community for all members, friends, and visitors.
