Justice Work : Black Lives Matter

The First Universalist Church of Yarmouth is committed to ending oppression and standing on the side of love. First Universalist's ongoing support of the refugee and asylum-seeker community, many of whom are people of color who face both xenophobia and racism, is one of the primary ways that members and friends of our congregation live out their values, stand in solidarity against racism, and affirm the worth and dignity of all people.
