Post-Imperial Futures: Addressing Legacy and Living Into Promise

In October 2022 the UUA Global Connections & Emerging Communities Office and Meadville Lombard Theological School hosted a conference to address the legacy of Empire and how its desire to dominate and mark out Otherness has us participate in harmful colonial enterprises.

The conference was designed for scholars, activists, ministers, and leaders. Participants were equipped with resources and practices to live into the promise of radical, post-colonial, and faithful futurities.

Webinar Series: Unitarian/Universalism’s Colonial Legacy: Are We an Imperial Faith?

During the fall of 2020, the International Unitarian/Universalist Joint Working Group (Unitarian Universalist Association Global Connections & Emerging Communities Office, the International Council of Unitarians and Universalists, and the UU Partner Church Council) hosted a five-part webinar series that posed the question: Are we an imperial faith? The series is now available as a free course on UU Leadership Institute.
