Multicultural Community Pittsburgh
Unitarian Universalism has long been built on the active relationships not just IN our congregations but BETWEEN them and with our communities. UUs of Greater Pittsburgh (also known as the Greater Pittsburgh Cluster) lives this value with compassion and spirit. The thirteen member churches collaborate to learn, work, and grow together to transform one another and the communities of which they are a part.
This Saturday, June 18th, UUs of Greater Pittsburgh will be hosting a free online event, open to all Unitarian Universalists, with representatives from Pittsburgh area organizations to talk about food inequality and insecurity as it relates to race. Area organizations will share their work and wisdom and give some concrete examples of how action leads to change in our communities. Some of the organizations invited include Jewish Family and Community Services, Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank, and South Hills Interfaith Movement. Each organization values their relationship with the communities they serve and knows that to do the work of community means involving the communities themselves. Each organization will share their work for 15-20 minutes with question/answer and discussion opportunities after. The event will be moderated by UUs of Greater Pittsburgh President Ron Smutny and board member Caron Carnahan.
This event is part of the Greater Pittsburgh Cluster’s commitment to offer an educational event to the member congregations each year. At the Annual Assembly in November 2021, the member congregations voted to enter into a year of study of the 8th Principle. This event helps further that study by considering what actively dismantling racism means in our social justice work.
We hope to see you there for this most important event! The event is open to all Unitarian Universalists, not just those in the cluster, and is free to attend. You do need to register to participate and receive the zoom link. To register, visit the event page.
