Our Congregation has adopted an explicit Anti-racism Principle (the “8th Principle”).
It states “We, the member congregations of the Unitarian Universalist Association, covenant to affirm and promote: journeying toward spiritual wholeness by working to build a diverse multicultural Beloved Community by our actions that accountably dismantle racism and other oppressions in ourselves and our institutions.”
UUC has an active anti-racism group that works to put this 8th Principle into action. It meets from 1-2 PM on the 2nd & 4th Sundays of each month. Contact Barbara for more information on the group and/or email@example.com to be added to the group’s email list.
Local anti-racism organizations we support both financially and by working with them.
