We will continue discussing racial justice issues in order to deepen our commitment to anti-racism. Please come prepared with a thought, question, article/book summary to share, and/or actions you have taken or plan to take regarding Racial Justice.
In November, we will discuss 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.” We invite you to learn more about the 8th Principle at https://www.8thprincipleuu.org/
