Black Lives Matter

The first principle of UU affirms and promotes the inherent worth and dignity of every person. When we say “all lives matter,” it’s not a racist dog-whistle; it’s a simple statement of truth that every single living human being matters. And right now, when Black lives in our beloved community are threatened, we focus our attention, our prayers, and our actions on defending them and amplifying their voices. Love calls us to take action to eradicate anti-Blackness in ourselves, in our congregations, and in the world. If you want to help, or if you need help, please join us!

 

 

Mosaicans are passionate about social justice issues.  We have donated time and treasure to many causes, marched in support of the rights of marginalized people, and supported organizations that share our beliefs about the inherent worth and dignity of every person.

  • Unpledged plate donations from the last Sunday of every month are sent to The Neighborhood Center, a social service agency here in West Volusia county.
  • We regularly collect food, clothing, and school supplies to support Orange City Elementary school, where about 80% of students live below the poverty level.
  • Mosaicans serve as mentors for local students and volunteer with hospice programs.
  • Several Mosaicans are active with civil rights organizations like the ACLU and NAACP.
