Mother’s Day In The Wake of Ferguson-Cleveland-New York-Baltimore

The Episcopal Diocese of Washington, D.C. issued a press release that started with the following lede:

In the wake of the violent deaths of black men and boys in encounters with police across the country, and in response to the unrest these deaths have engendered, churches across the Episcopal Diocese of Washington are dedicating Mother’s Day to “mothers who live with the daily fear of losing their children to violence and the children themselves,” said Bishop Mariann Edgar Budde.

This got me to thinking: how many UU churches would do that? Would the UUA encourage congregations to do something like that and offer resources to support that?
