So You're Working on the 8th Principle...

So You're Working on the 8th Principle.... Learn from other congregations doing anti-racism work. Worship - Workshops - Caucusing. Saturday February 25, 2023 on Zoom, 12-5 pm ET. Sliding Scale fee of $10-30-50. New Day Rising Central East Region.-

Congregations throughout the Central East Region have started work on adopting the 8th Principle, covenanting 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. Some congregations have discussed it with no action, some have voted to adopt it, and some are using it to actively work on dismantling racism in their systems and communities. Every UU congregation is ready to take the next step in their process of furthering antiracism, whether they use the 8th Principle as a vehicle or not.

Join this year's New Day Rising event to learn from neighboring congregations about what path they've taken with their 8th Principle and other antiracism work, and how your congregation might move itself forward.
