  • Supports and publicizes the commitment of Task Forces to act on specific issues.

We Stand for Equality

  • The congregation voted to support Marriage Equality and worked to defeat the Knight initiative in 1999.   
  • We have been affirmed as a Welcoming Congregation by the UUA. 
  • We vigorously opposed Proposition 8 in 2008, which would eliminate the right of same-sex couples to marry.  We continue to monitor its passage through the courts.
