“Giving Thanks
Sunday 11am EDT by Zoom

November 20 was Transgender Day of Remembrance

 A Chapel service was held on Zoom which you are invited to watch (link below.) As a Welcoming Congregation, UUFA is called, as expressed by Rev. Michael J. Crumpler, UUA’s LGBTQ and Multicultural Programs Director, “to do everything we can to celebrate the transgender, genderqueer, and non-binary community by dismantling any and all barriers to total equity and full inclusion in our congregations, institutions, and society at large.”
