Faith CoLab: Tapestry of Faith: Building the World We Dream About: An Anti-racism Multicultural Program


Whatever any of us concludes about race relations, we should start by including all of us. — Frank Wu, author of Yellow

This workshop introduces perspectives on "Whiteness" from people who belong to marginalized racial/ethnic identity groups. It provides resources that will engage participants with stories of Unitarian Universalists whose racial/ethnic identities reflect the demographic of the congregation and/or the surrounding community or region in which the congregation is located.

Before leading this workshop, review the accessibility guidelines in the program Introduction under Integrating All Participants.
