We seek to promote in-person dialogue about systemic issues that affect human dignity with a goal of fostering a more inclusive community.

The Hingham Unity Council is a non-partisan group started by members of the Hingham community in fall 2019. All are welcome to participate in our conversations and planning. Please read more about our vision, purpose and guiding tenets here. At this time, we are focusing on programming to address issues affecting our town such as diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging, socioeconomic disparities, and standing with our LGBQTIA+ community. If you are interested in getting more involved, please contact us.

Please  join our mailing list to be notified of upcoming events and initiatives. We are fiscally sponsored by the South Shore Unity Council, a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit.

The Meaning of Juneteenth – Call for Student Submissions

As part of the celebration of Juneteenth in Hingham this year,  the Hingham Unity Council is inviting all students who live and/or attend school in Hingham to participate in a competition where they can express the importance of celebrating the holiday and what Juneteenth means to the community through a work of visual or performance art, an essay or other written work. Students in grades K- 12 are invited to submit an essay, poem, a piece of visual art (drawing, painting, sculpture - any medium of expression is welcome!), a video or original song or other performance to the Juneteenth committee.

Protecting Choice

We have already heard from many who are deeply upset over this news and asking what they can do. We do not believe action can wait until November. We must force lawmakers  to secure reproductive freedom immediately and this will only be accomplished through mass mobilization and sustained action in our streets and communities. Every major step towards justice in this country– from the Civil Rights Act to the original Roe decision– has required direct civil action.
