Topic “Social Justice Event”

Standing on the Side of Love ~ Sat. Nov. 28, 6 PM

Beverly Unitarian is opening its doors for anyone who might be in need. In the wake of injustice, we gather to know we are not alone. In the face of fear, we stand together stronger and more resolved. Instead of spreading hate we will continue to work for change. There will be music/conversation, perhaps planning and organizing, definitely community for whomever is here.

Southside Faith in Action Assembly ~ Sat. Aug 1

Partnered with the Community Renewal Society (CRS) and many southside churches, we will assemble in the BUC church parking lot to carpool to Hartzell Memorial UMC at 3330 S. Martin Luther King Dr. for a Southside Faith in Action Assembly. The Assembly is from 1:30 t0 3:00 if you want to drive on your own.

At the Assembly, we will ask our Alderman and Cook County Commissioners to support our platform on Police Accountability and to invest in Restorative Justice programs to make our community safer.

Join in to work for Social Justice, together we will make a difference!

The following is taken directly from CRS's website. It tells what they do. You can see why the Beverly Unitarian Church is proud to be in partnership with this organization.

"Community Renewal Society is a progressive, faith-based organization that works to eliminate race and class barriers. Founded in 1882, Community Renewal informs, organizes and trains both communities and individuals to advocate for social and economic justice.

We believe every resident in our region has the right to:

  • Affordable housing
  • A high-quality education
  • Jobs that pay a living wage
  • A fair criminal justice system
  • Safe, vibrant neighborhoods
  • Redeem themselves in the public eye once they've paid their debt to society

To achieve our goal of a region that is free of race and class barriers, we:

  • Work purposefully on multiple issues, principally housing, jobs, education and criminal justice, because they are often intertwined
  • Work with a wide cross section of communities and leaders, engaging them in these critical issues
  • Examine and suggest improvements in current public practices
  • Expose the direct relationship between reducing social inequities and the long-term economic health of our region
  • Hold government accountable for its role in breaking down race and class barriers and making the region work for all of its residents."

 

PUBLIC VIGIL this Wednesday, June 24, 2015 ~ 7 PM

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. - the Rev. Dr. M. L. King

When a sanctuary of peace, a place we are taught to love, is visited by hatred and violence, people of faith must respond. Please join us for a vigil of remembrance for those ruthlessly killed in an AME church in South Carolina.

Like the spiritual entreat to stay awake found in many traditions we must be vigilant in our watching, in our working, in our support. I imagine the light of hope that might be kindled at the sight of candles lit in remembrance. I imagine the connections we will make between our congregations and we hope as many congregations as possible will come out to the street with lit candles to show public support for the families and community affected by this tragedy and to make our voices heard against such senseless violence.

As communities of faith, we are called to wake up to the injustice and violence in front of us. We must be vigilant in our watching, in our working, in our speaking out loud and in displaying our support. We can be a light of hope, kindled by candles lit in solemn remembrance.

It will mark a public connection between each of our congregations as we look up and down the streets of Beverly and Morgan Park to see others standing in front of their own houses of worship.

Will you join us? Will you be a force for love?

Even if you are not able to organize a community-wide response, please know that everyone will be welcome to join our service.

**** Please note: if you feel you can spread the word more widely please do.
