Welcome to The Mosaic
The Mosaic is an online hub of connection, resources, and support for Unitarian Universalists dismantling racism and oppression. Through resources, programs, training, groups, and gatherings, The Mosaic fosters belonging and liberation in Unitarian Universalist congregations and communities. Our work for collective liberation can be as colorful, multi-faceted, and diverse as the tiles of a mosaic. Together, all of our contributions create something beautiful.
Why The Mosaic?
In response to the recommendations of the Commission on Institutional Change's (COIC) 2020 report, Widening the Circle of Concern, the UUA is creating and curating anti-racism resources and programs to further support the anti-racist transformation that has been embraced by so many of our congregations and communities.
Emerging Elements of the Mosaic
The Anti-Racism Resource Library
We've curated and tagged trainings, books, curricula, and more, from UU sources and beyond, to support your anti-racist transformational work. Search the Mosaic Anti-Racism Resource Library to identify the resource that fits your needs. Resources are tagged by topic, age group(s), focus, type, and more.
Learning and Practice Communities
Mosaic National Learning and Practice Gatherings support organizations and congregations’ long-term commitment to carry out Anti-Racism/Anti-Oppression/Multicultural (AR/AO/MC) transformation work in their contexts. These gatherings will include a mix of facilitated learning from trusted voices in the movement for AR/AO/MC transformation and opportunities to be in conversation with fellow UUs from across our movement. Whether you are a seasoned leader or just curious to learn more, you are welcome. National Learning and Practice Communities are approximately 90 minutes long. Participants may come to one, many, or all gatherings. Register for the National Gatherings!
Mosaic Skill-up Learning and Practice Communities are facilitated small group experiences dedicated to helping leaders develop the skills and accountability they need to engage in effective AR/AO/MC transformation work in their context. These are virtual, time-limited (meeting approximately twice a month over 4 months,) and are led by trained facilitators. Register for Autumn 2023 L&P Communities!
BIPOC UU Connections
Rev. Qiyamah Rahman has created a guide for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) UUs to find support, connection, and Unitarian Universalist community.

Future Elements of the Mosaic
The UUA Lifespan Faith Engagement office is currently developing a lifespan anti-racism curriculum and is beta-testing an "Untangling White Supremacy" program for high school youth. Additionally, UUA leaders will be organizing Mosaic events congregations engaging in transformation. The Mosaic will continue to form and emerge as our congregations, and our Association, learn new things. We invite you to place your sparkling and colorful tiles in the Mosaic.
