Shoreline Unitarian is a UUA Welcoming Congregation
SUUS was recognized as a Welcoming Congregation by the UUA in 1993. This means SUUS commits to being inclusive and expressive of the concerns of GLBTQ persons at every level of congregational life – in worship, in programs, and in social opportunities.
In 2008, with the establishment of the Fred Keefe Endowment Fund, the congregation voted to set aside 10% of grant money available each year to support the LGBTQ community and to educate, advocate, and support all our brothers and sisters in their struggles with equal rights. Our congregation held LGBTQ movie series in June for many years, worked with Welcoming Congregations of CT to identify Welcoming and Affirming congregations of all faiths, worked with Robin McHaelen of True Colors, supported their organization and sent our youth to their conferences at UCONN, supported and hosted PFLAG events, worked for marriage equality in CT with Love Makes a Family and support the UUA statements of conscience nationally.
