Anti-Racism Work

From the UUA Website:

"Grounded in a deep belief that we are all prophets, Unitarian Universalists ask, “How can we faithfully meet the demands of our time?” The call to witness and act for justice in our society and in the world is clear. So, too, is the call to examine our structures and practices, dismantling and transforming those which fail to recognize the full humanity of all people and to honor the interdependent web of life. Join us in Kansas City as we dive deeply into questions of mission for our Unitarian Universalist Association, for our congregations and communities, and for each of us as individuals. Together, we’ll ask:

Who and how are we called to be at this time, individually and collectively?

How are we called to act and to live?

How does our Unitarian Universalist  legacy strengthen us in living out our mission? In what ways does our legacy present challenges and impediments to answering our call?"

In preparation of hosting the UUA General Assembly, SMUUCh has begun exploring topics that will help us be the best hosts we can be by learning about and beginning work on our own understanding of racism and white supremacy and our part in it.  We held a forum on October 22 exploring these topics. Here are the resources from that forum which are in pdf format: (You'll need Adobe pdf reader to access them)
