In December, First Universalist was recognized on a local television program for the racial justice work being done by our community.
Rev. Justin Schroeder, Senior Minister at First Universalist, and Ben Miles, member of the Racial Justice Leadership Team, appeared on a segment of “Our Issues Twin Cities” that aired on The CW-23 in December. The segment covers police brutality, the recent emergence of the Black Lives Matter movement – “one of the most powerful civil rights movements since the 1960s” – and highlights First Universalist as one of several predominantly white communities in the Twin Cities that is putting racial justice at the center of its mission and responding to the call from Black Lives Matter to stand in solidarity.
The CW-23 program is available to watch online via YouTube as well as in the player below. Look for Rev. Justin Schroeder and Ben Miles starting around the 15:30 mark.
