DANBURY, Conn. – When she attends Sunday services with the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Danbury, U.S. Rep. Elizabeth Esty will present the pastor with a new Pride Flag to replace one that was stolen in May.
Esty will attend the services from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. at the church. There, she will present the congregation with a Pride Flag, a symbol of the LGBT equality movement, and a certificate commending them for their advocacy for LGBT rights.
Esty will also present the Rev. Barbara Fast a letter thanking her for her service, because this Sunday will be her last official service with the Congregation.
In this past week, Esty took part in a sit-in on the floor of the U.S. House to call attention to curb gun violence. The protest led by U.S. Rep. John Lewis of Georgia along with Democrats from Connecticut came in the wake of 49 deaths in a shooting at a gay nightclub in Orlando, the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history.
The Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Danbury is located at 24 Clapboard Ridge Road, Danbury.
