Rev. Dr. Monica L. Cummings, former Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) program associate for Ministry to Youth and Young Adults of Color, created the animated video and discussion guide.

Elizabeth Nguyen, leadership development associate for Youth and Young Adults of Color, at yayaofcolor [at] uua [dot] org to connect with UUA staff who may be able to participate in a workshop via Skype or in person, or if you wish to adapt any of these materials.
Rev. Nguyen resources religious leaders, supports racial justice work, and develops programs that serve UU youth and young adults of color. She works with Association, district, regional, and congregational staff, Diverse Revolutionary Unitarian Universalist Multicultural Ministries (DRUUMM), Allies for Racial Equity (ARE), religious educators, and multiracial and multiethnic families to support the leadership development needs of Youth and Young Adults of Color and their allies.
