This Sunday’s Service – Standing up to Hate

April 29 Service at 10:30 AM

Anna Schutz

Anna Schutz will tell the story of the First Parish Unitarian Universalist Church of Newburyport when their members stood up to George Lincoln Rockwell, the head of the American Nazi Party. In the late 1950’s they prevented Rockwell’s group from marching in Newburyport. Anna will tell how this relates to the current hate group marches in this country such as Charlottesville, VA and how we can model the behavior of those UU’s in the 1950’s.
