    Remember to…Seek ways to amplify and incorporate the voices of people of color in all aspects of congregational life. Centering voices of people of color helps to destabilize white supremacy as the dominant cultural norm in a UU setting and beyond.
  • For this month we encourage you and your congregants to watch some of the best moments of General Assembly (GA) 2019 in Spokane, WA. As program staff we recommend the Sunday morning worship service with a mighty and moving sermon, It is Time Now, by Reverend Marta I. Valentín.
  • For many of us, one of the highlights at last month’s Regional Assembly in Saint Louis was the Saturday evening viewing of a TED talk by Professor Kimberlé Crenshaw, an American civil rights advocate and a leading scholar of critical race theory, known for the introduction and development of intersectional theory.
  • We recommend watching a recording of a webinar called “Decentering Whiteness in Worship” led by Rev. Erika Hewitt, Dr. Glen Thomas Rideout, and Julica Hermann de la Fuente that was recorded on June 1, 2017.
  • Webinar hosted by Julica Hermann de la Fuente, a UU Lay Community Minister and a candidate for UU ministry. “Knowing Ourselves” was the first installment of Changing Systems, Changing Ourselves: Anti-racist Practice for Sanctuary, Accompaniment & Resistance, a four-session monthly online course.

  • By Nancy Combs-Morgan
    As we seek to dismantle white supremacy, within our own institution, as well as the greater world, we must seek to be in relationship.
