This group discusses racial justice issues in order to deepen our commitment to anti-racism.
Our current focus is on the proposed UUA 8th Principle: “We, the member congregations of the Unitarian Universalist Association, covenant to affirm and promote: journeying toward spiritual wholeness by working to build a diverse multicultural Beloved Community by our actions that accountably dismantle racism and other oppressions in ourselves and our institutions.”
“Kids’ Version” of the 8th Principle: We must work together for diversity and inclusion and against racism and oppression. Or: We must work together to make sure every individual is cherished.
Emerson UU members will vote at our Congregational Meeting in June as to whether or not to endorse the 8th Principle.
We invite you to learn more about the 8th Principle at https://www.8thprincipleuu.org/
Contact: LindaBeth Nelson with questions.
