The Hingham Unity Council was formed to create a space for conversation, to unify our community, and to support Hingham residents and guests who have been marginalized and treated unjustly throughout history. In an essay that he wrote days before he passed away, John Lewis wrote: “When historians pick up their pens to write the story of the 21st century, let them say that it was your generation who laid down the heavy burdens of hate at last and that peace finally triumphed over violence, aggression and war.”
On July 9, 2020, Hingham Unity Council presented a live Zoom conversation with Dolly Chugh, author of "The Person You Mean to Be, How Good People Fight Bias." Below is the video of that event.
