UUCOB Issues Statement – Calls for Courageous Action by National Leaders
The Board of Trustees of the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of the Outer Banks in Kitty Hawk, NC has released the following statement on behalf of the Congregation:
As a faith community committed to justice, equity, and compassion in human relations and to the democratic process, the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of the Outer Banks unequivocally condemns the January 6, 2021 attack on the U.S. Congress. We grieve the loss of life in that attack, and the failure of human empathy and moral responsibility it represented. We join our Unitarian Universalist Association and other national religious and social justice groups in calling for the conviction of Donald Trump by the Senate. We call for meaningful consequences for U.S. Senators and House members who amplified the false claim that the election was stolen, or have given aid and comfort to those who attacked our democracy in an effort to overthrow the will of American voters.
Share the Plate: One half of all Sunday morning offerings are donated to worthy community organizations in the Outer Banks such as: Beach Food Pantry, OBX Cancer Support Group, Community Care Clini
c of Dare, Children & Youth Partnership, Friends of the Reserve, Room at the Inn, Interfaith Community Outreach.
Volunteering: UUCOB members and friends volunteer with dozens of worthy organizations in the surrounding community on the Outer Banks.
Activism: UUCOB has a strong tradition of leadership and participation in social justice causes that affect our community and the wider world.
