We welcome all who seek a religious home, free of creeds and based on love, reason, and conscience. We first met over 60 years ago as a small lay-led fellowship. At that time several professors from Humboldt State University were seeking religious education for their children. They researched various curricula and found themselves drawn to the curriculum they found for Unitarian Universalism. This was the beginning of Humboldt Unitarian Universalist Fellowship
In our first year of existence (1954) members of our group joined with NAACP to intervene on behalf of a African-American family new to the area. We became a “sanctuary” for a family from El Salvador in the 1960s. Two of the little girls in the family are now finishing their PhD’s.
We taught the curricula “Cakes for the Queen of Heaven” and “Rise Up and Call Her Name” to better understand gender issues and diversity in the lives of women. We used the curriculum to become more aware of attitudes and understanding the lives of gays, lesbians, transgender and bisexual people among us and officially became a “Welcoming Congregation” as sanctioned by the Unitarian Universalist Association. We have grown with the help of strong leadership – both lay and ministerial – to a dynamic fellowship serving Humboldt County and the Northern coast of California.
