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 part of the South Shore Unity Council, a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit.

Welcoming Statement and Images from Stand Up for Unity Event

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.”
