Create Justice - Not Walls
Type of event: Public Event
Sponsor: UU Church of Buffalo, Buffalo, NY
Issues of race and class intersect here in Western New York, making this one of the most segregated areas in the country. In the spirit of beginning a process to become more inclusive, we are pleased to offer the following workshop.
How do class and classism, race and racism shape our lives, our social justice work, and our UU organizations? And how do we make changes toward becoming more inclusive? Through this workshop, we will:
Explore class and race in our lives and congregations.
Examine whether people from different classes and races experience our faith differently.
Look at ways to expand our welcome tent for wider participation and increase congregational membership.
Suggested Donation: Sliding scale between $20-$45. (If you can afford more, please consider doing so; it allows others to participate!)
Deadline for requesting childcare is November 2.
Registration deadline is November 7.
Presented by UU Class Conversations
