IDEA 1: C.O.M. is an AGENT OF THE ENTIRE CONGREGATION
Allows professional clergy, lay leaders and congregation at large to work toward fulfillment of mission and covenant. Bylaws should support COM made up of well respected persons. Regular rotation and term limits. Should not have adversarial approach!
Black Lives of UU has put out a call to action to UU congregations to support Black-led organizing around the country. So far at least 70 congregations have responded.
Formed in the wake of several conversations among Black UUs at the July 2015 Movement for Black Lives Convening in Cleveland, OH - the BLUU Organizing Collective works to provide support, information & resources for Black Unitarian Universalists. We also work to expand the role & visibility of Black UUs within our faith.
