At the next and final workshop, you will consider actions to integrate learning from Building the World We Dream About into the life of the congregation. Possible plans of action include:

  • Lead a Sunday worship service to share hopes and dreams for doing antiracist/multicultural work with the whole community.
  • Repeat the program with a second generation of participants.
  • Work with the congregation to construct a mission and vision statement that expresses your commitment to antiracism and multiculturalism in the congregation and the larger community.
  • Conduct an antiracism/multicultural audit of the congregation to identify ways to communicate welcome, inclusion and affirmation of people of diverse races, ethnicities, and cultures.
  • Identify UUA and District resources for increasing the congregation's commitment to antiracist/multiculturalism.
  • Create and build an ecumenical partnership with another faith community to work on racial justice in your community.
  • Team with a civic organization that deals with issues of racism.
  • Create an ongoing discussion and action group that keeps issues of race and equity on the congregational agenda.
  • Create an oral history project that chronicles the racial history of your congregation and/or community.
  • Lead a racial reconciliation process in your congregation or community.
  • Send youth and young adults from your congregation to regional and national Unitarian Universalist meetings on race and equity.
  • Connect with the UUA Standing on the Side of Love campaign to challenge identity-based violence, exclusion, and oppression, with a focus on local antiracism and multiculturalism opportunities.
