The two candidates for the presidency of the Unitarian Universalist Association, the Rev. Dr. Laurel Hallman and the Rev. Peter Morales, have jointly written an op-ed for the Salt Lake Tribune supporting comprehensive hate crimes legislation:
It is clear our nation is suffering through an epidemic of violent hate crimes. Our response to these heinous acts must not only be legislative or political, but personal as well. Unitarian Universalists choose to stand on the side of love, in solidarity with those who are targeted with violence, oppression and exclusion based on identity.
Delegates to the UUA’s General Assembly in Salt Lake City will elect a new president next Saturday.
