Second Bus Added For Saturday’s March

March and Rally in Rodney Square

March for Lives LogoMore than 40 persons have already registered for the bus from First Unitarian Church to the Wilmington March for Our Lives on Saturday, 3/24. A second bus will be added to ensure that there’s enough space for all who wish to use this service.

There’s room for more! If you are planning to ride and are not registered, sign up here. A suggested donation of $5.00 per person will cover the cost of the bus.

Please assemble in the back parking lot on Halstead Road by 9:15 a.m. to take the bus to Howard High School. From there, we will be marching together to Rodney Square, where there will be a rally to follow including music, informational vendors educating the public on ways we can prevent gun violence in Delaware, and speakers ranging from the students who helped organize the march to some of the sponsors of current gun legislation. 

The bus will be leaving at 12:30 p.m. to return to the church. A suggested donation of $5 is requested to help cover the costs of bus.  Please sign up here to reserve your spot on the bus. Let’s show our community that we support common sense gun laws! Event information can be found on Facebook. Sponsored by our Human Rights Task Force at the First Unitarian Church.

March For Our Lives DE

First Unitarian Church is organizing a bus to downtown Wilmington for the March for Our Lives event on March 24. March for Our Lives is created by, inspired by and led by students across the country who will no longer risk their lives waiting for someone else to take action to stop the epidemic of mass school shootings that has become all too familiar.

Please join us in the back parking lot on Halstead Road by 9:15 a.m. to take the bus to Howard High School. From there, we will be marching together to Rodney Square, where there will be a rally to follow including music, informational vendors educating the public on ways we can prevent gun violence in Delaware, and speakers ranging from the students who helped organize the march to some of the sponsors of current gun legislation. 

The bus will be leaving at 12:30 p.m. to return to the church.

March 18: Third Sunday Justice Talk

Coalition to Dismantle New Jim Crow

Sunday, March 18, 9:15 – 10:15 a.m.,
Brunner Chapel

NewJimCrow Logo FreeToSoarDelaware’s Coalition to Dismantle the New Jim Crow grew out of a series of interracial, interdenominational discussions-organized in part by members of First Unitarian Church-of Michelle Alexander’s groundbreaking book The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness. Since 2013, the Coalition has offered monthly public forums, summits, and conferences seeking to raise awareness and understanding of mass incarceration and systemic and institutional racism. The Coalition advocates for changes in state and local policy to rectify the effects of mass incarceration, institutional racism, and economic inequality, and believes that it is necessary for people of all races to acknowledge the need for racial healing and to collectively work towards a just society. This year’s daylong conference, Power and Change: Dismantling Racial Bias through Community Action will be held on Saturday, April 28. Please welcome Shyanne Miller and Alison Wakelin of the Coalition to our Third Sunday Justice Talk, sponsored by by the First Unitarian Human Rights Task Force.
