About First UU

We are a member congregation of the Unitarian Universalist Association. Guided by the UUA Principles and Purposes, our mission is to live in harmony with each other and nature, and to act with peace, compassion, and justice for all.


Stop Calling the Police and Start Eradicating Anti-Blackness

As we mourn the death of George Floyd and other Black people killed by police, and as we respond to COVID-19, which continues to disproportionately impact Black communities, the UUA denounces anti-Black racism and the inherent violence of policing. Police brutality is a symptom of white supremacy and anti-Black racism, and as people of faith and conscience dedicated to justice and liberation, we must name this truth.

This is an invitation for all UU individuals and congregations to pause and do some deep self-reflection on the ways in which we are called to confront and combat these forces.

Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man – YouTube series

Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man is a safe place to have the uncomfortable conversations about race that many people have never been able to have. But enough is enough - I want to remove the barriers for why we’ve never had these conversations. I want to provide a free space for curious white people to answer the questions they’ve always had but have been too nervous to ask. Like, “How can I have white privilege if I’m not wealthy?” or “is racial profiling ok if black people tend to commit more crimes” and my personal favorite from a 19-year-old girl from rural Alabama named Amy who asked, “if black people can say the ‘N’ word, why can’t I?” And many, many more.
