“The MeToo Revelations” | Rev. Julia Hamilton
This Sunday we will be returning to the topic that was postponed from last week: With the explosion of people sharing their stories in the “MeToo” movement and high-profile harassment cases in the headlines, 2017 looked like a watershed moment for the issue of sexual harassment and assault. What kind of transformation is happening among us?

Statement of Conscience on the issue of Sanctuary
The Unitarian Society of Santa Barbara resolves to affirm the principals of our faith, in both private and public forum, by providing a single voice against unjust policies and practices that target and discriminate against immigrant communities. We the members commission our Board of Directors and Ministry to speak for the Society as one voice in opposition to public policies and action that threaten the human rights of all immigrants.
Additionally we resolve to join with other organizations in the pursuit of justice, dignity and compassion for immigrant communities and to provide support both real and moral as we go forth.
We adopt the covenant proposed by the emerging Interfaith Sanctuary Alliance here in Santa Barbara: “As people of faith and people of conscience, we believe that every person is sacred. We will work to ensure respect for the dignity, safety, and human rights of all people, while resisting unjust policies and practices that target and discriminate against immigrant communities.”
