The Open Doors Action Group's mission is to provide affirmation of traditionally marginalized groups, including providing a safe space to meet, and continued work towards equality, social interaction and engagement within the congregation and the community at large.
Black Lives Matter
Our faith tradition has a history of witness and action against racial injustice. Still, we are confronted with the realization that we do not understand deeply enough the anti-Black history of our country and the compounding effects of structural and broad reaching racism. We know that to be against injustice, education and action must blend together in a way that is honest, consistent, and unflinching. We need to listen and learn. We need to engage and take action. Contact Jeff Kowalski for more information and meeting times.
The Unitarian Universalist Church of Delaware County (UUCDC) is a Welcoming Congregation that seeks to celebrate and support the lives, the relationships, and contributions of its lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and heterosexual members and friends. We affirm and promote full participation of everyone in the life of our congregation and our community. Our congregation's Welcoming Congregation Resolution was voted on and accepted on April 21, 2002. Our Welcoming Congregation status is recertified each year, under UUA guidelines.
Interweave is UUCDC's embodiment of the greater UUA Welcoming Congregation and is part of our Social Justice and Outreach ministry. Interweave seeks to develop awareness of the intersectionality of LGBTQIA people, allowing us to better acknowledge and ground the differences among us, while promoting the support and needs of our LGBTQIA congrgants and their allies.
Interweave recognizes the LGBTQIA community is at once a unique and an interwoven part of the rich tapestry that is UUCDC, working to advance the rights of LGBTQIA people everywhere by sponsoring and participating in events to promote a wide range of social justice issues.
