Seeking Diversity

welcoming-congregationPart of the vision of the Fellowship is that we will continue to welcome the range of people who reflect the Bennington area community. Our areas of diversity include income, race, sexual orientation, abilities, age and nations of origin.

The Fellowship has an ongoing committee on Welcoming Diversity and has hosted book discussion groups, movies and other activities designed to engage members in the many issues affecting diversity in our society.

The UUFB has been recognized by the Unitarian Universalist Association as a Welcoming Congregation. This means the Fellowship's members conducted a series of activities designed to increase understanding of and appreciation for lesbian, gay, transgender and bisexual individuals. Members voted to apply for and received the Welcoming Congregation designation.
