During the 1960s, the UUA’s Department of Social Responsibility recruited volunteers to travel to the South and assist in civil rights campaigns. Hundreds of Unitarians Universalists answered the call and partnered with local groups to help register voters, organize, and march. Answering this call was dangerous and two Unitarian Universalists—Rev. James Reeb and Viola Liuzzo—were murdered for participating in the Selma to Montgomery Marches in 1965.
