UUCR was designated a Welcoming Congregation by the UUA in 1998. Since then, the LGBTQ Task Group has helped the Equality Maryland movement to pass Maryland's marriage equality law (2012) and created Rainbow Youth Alliance (RYA), a support group for LGBTQ teens (2006). Our LGBTQ Task Group supports and participates in these UUCR programs as well as Montgomery County's Transgender Day of Remembrance and the Capital Pride parade and festival.
Hundreds of thousands of immigrants in Montgomery County and the millions more throughout the United States live in the shadows. Unitarian Universalist principles call for a federal solution that benefits immigrants and enriches our community. For the latest information on legislation and advocacy, visit farmworkerjustice.org.
