Community. Courage. Love. Diversity. Generosity. Joy. These are the cornerstones of our congregation. Since 1876, the Unitarian Society has been a beacon of progressive religion in Santa Barbara. If you are seeking a religion that speaks to your mind as well as your heart, a spiritual community with doors wide open to the world, you are welcome here. To quote the poet Mary Oliver, "What will you do with your one wild and precious life?"
STATEMENT OF CONSCIENCE supporting black lives matter
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.
