Worth and Dignity of All Bodies

"Ableism is the process of favoring, fetishizing, and building the world around a mostly imagined, idealized body while discriminating against those bodies perceived to move, see, hear, process, operate, look, or need differently from that vision.”
Rebekah Taussig, in Sitting Pretty: The View from My Ordinary Resilient Disabled Body

As more Unitarian Universalists learn to understand the intersecting and interlocking oppressions that harm us all, we're also developing a more nuanced understanding of ableism. This worship collection (under development through the fall of 2021) is one way to further that learning within our spiritual and religious values.
