Honoring Our Spiritual Leaders

Do you know who the First Unitarian and or Universalist female clergy was? What about the first Black woman to break through into the UU ministry? What about any of the other women of diverse heritage in our movement that have altered the trajectory of our faith community? Well, it’s time for us all to amplify their voices and contributions. Join us for a service engaging the stories behind these awesome women who have served our denomination and nation so so well.
