OUR HISTORY

OUR MISSION & VISION

The UU Urban Ministry has continued its work in Boston for nearly 200 years by facing the moment we are in, summoning the resources to address it, and convening people to work together to make change.  At our Annual Meeting in May 2021, our organization embraced a bold new mission statement - one that gets to the heart of our work at the intersection between communities: 

Our Mission:  We work across race and place to dismantle racism and white supremacy culture and to advance racial, social, and economic justice.

Our Vision:  We envision a Greater Boston where all people live with freedom and dignity, and have equitable access to resources and opportunity to shape the present and the future.
