We have been asked by Black Lives of Unitarian Universalism to interrupt our regularly scheduled worship service on April 30 and join more than one hundred other UU churches in a #UUWhiteSupremacyTeachIn.

This call to action and worship comes from a growing network of UUs— religious professionals and lay leaders from both within and outside congregations — led by UUs of color and white UUs working together.

Over the past few weeks, many have been responding to calls by UUs of color to look critically *within* our faith communities— including hiring practices, power brokers, and cultural habits— for the ways racism, sexism, and white supremacy live. […]

Whether your UU community has dozens of members and children of color, or just about everyone is white, the commitment to combat white supremacy must be strong and urgent. Battling racism in its many forms is not easy. Everyone has to start somewhere, and it takes a commitment to disrupt business as usual.

This event listing will be updated as details become available. Contact Rev. Greg Pelley at minister@uusmc.org with questions of to help organize the teach-in at UUSMC.
