At the 2020 annual meeting, the members of the Unitarian Society of Santa Barbara voted overwhelmingly to adopt the following statement of conscience:
"USSB supports the five demands of Black Lives Matter SB. We urge the Santa Barbara City Council and the County Board of Supervisors to condemn police brutality and declare racism a public health emergency. USSB further supports and affirms Black Lives Matter and will renew and strengthen our commitment to anti-racism work and to dismantling all systems of white supremacy."
The vote was brought to the annual meeting as a piece of new business in response to continued violence against black people and in support of racial justice worldwide.
