Two weeks ago, First Parish in Lexington signed a Declaration of Conscience from the UUA and UUSC. Below is a follow-up request for individuals and congregations. It reads:
Thank you for joining thousands of Unitarian Universalists and people of all faiths who have signed the Declaration of Conscience! To date, we’ve had:
Over 10,000 signatures, including,
Signers from all 50 U.S. states and Washington, D.C.,
Over 200 congregations endorsements, and
More than 600 committed clergy members
The movement is growing as more and more people commit to defending our values and our communities by resisting the oppressive political agenda in Washington and across the country. Our Beloved Community has never been under greater threat, and never have so many risen to answer the call so quickly. Share the Declaration with your friends on Facebook!
Here’s how you can stay engaged. As a signer of the Declaration of Conscience, you are invited next week to join the first of our regular Conscience Call virtual gatherings. You’ll see inspiring stories of resistance, hear from partners in solidarity, and find out about ways you can take action.

Here are a few more key ways you can stay connected and keep heart:

- Learn: Register for our next webinar, The Path Toward Sanctuary: A Practical Guide on Monday, February 27 at 7:00 p.m. ET to learn the nuts and bolts of having your congregation offer physical sanctuary to those at risk of deportation.
- Act: Check out the new resource, Solidarity & Sanctuary: Options for Congregational Action, for an overview of both big and small ways to take action together.
- Share: Add your congregation or group’s public event or program to the Show the Love map, and watch the movement for equity and justice grow!
Yours in faith & conscience,
UUA and UUSC
