The long story of the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Huntington (UUFH) is bursting with social justice history: one of our longtime members, Joyce Williams, was very involved in the Civil Rights struggles in the early 1960s, including the Freedom Rides. Members of our congregation have fought for GLBTQ acceptance for generations. The Fellowship has been recognized as a Life Member of the Huntington NAACP and has been designated by the Unitarian Universalist Association as a Welcoming Congregation. Longtime members Paul and Susan Glatzer have been very active in the Huntington branch of the NAACP for many years, through the initiative of the UUA. Recently deceased member Frank McWade worked ceaselessly on local civil rights issues. Member Helen Boxwill has taken the struggle for human rights to Ethiopia and Burundi, where she works to build schools and libraries.
In conjunction with the Huntington branch of the NAACP, the UUFH supports our African American brothers and sisters in their quest for a fairer and more just community.
Currently, the UUFH is turning its social justice focus toward the Black Lives Matter movement, prison reform, and immigration issues.
