Our mission: We are committed to action that fosters diversity and inclusion at First Parish UU of Arlington, in Massachusetts, and beyond.  Our actions will be grounded in discussions and dialogues that deepen our understanding of the meaning and challenges of diversity.

Definition of diversity: Race, social class, gender, age, ability/disability, & sexual orientation, as well as the intersections among these identities

If you are interested and have ideas to contribute, please join us! You will be very welcome.
