Mother's Day became a national holiday in 1914 after years of effort driven by Anna Jarvis.  She wanted a day dedicated to expressing love and gratitude to mothers, and to acknowledge the sacrifices women make for their children. Anne was inspired by desire to honor her mother – and others like her - who had a lifelong focus on caring for children and promoting peace.  

This year, make a gift to support the work of the UU Urban Ministry, to help support and expand our youth programming and promote our community-focused mission and vision.  Your gift will enable us to expand opportunities and programming for students in Roxbury Youth Programs (RYP).  You will also be helping make our organization be a true crossroads for people and cultures, through our new tours program, and events that bring Roxbury and our member congregations together.
