The CVUU Social Justice Committee and Racial Justice Task Force expedited efforts to present the 8th Principle of Unitarian Universalism to the congregation last spring.  At the CVUU Annual Meeting on Sunday, June 28, 2020, the 8th Principle was adopted.

Racial Justice Task Force

CVUU’s Racial Justice Taskforce works closely with the Unitarian Universalists (UUA) and Black Lives of Unitarian Universalism (BLUU) in an effort to model behaviors expressed in Our Principles to make our congregation, community and society a more just and truthful place that acknowledges and seeks to heal from the racial wounds of our past.

Our mission is to continuously work towards being a fully inclusive, compassionate congregation actively engaged in anti-racism and racial justice work that transforms our community and society as a whole.
The Taskforce is charged with educating the congregation, and the community using projects intended to deepen our experience and understanding of what it means to be a multi -racial, multi-cultural congregation and, specifically, to enhance the multicultural awareness of our members and community.

We partner with other faith groups, community groups and community leaders to improve race relations in the Hampton Roads area and beyond.
