Racial Justice as Compassion and Spiritual Practice
“We work to be diverse multicultural Beloved Communities where all thrive. We covenant to dismantle racism and all forms of systemic oppression. We support the use of inclusive democratic processes to make decisions within our congregations, our Association, and society at large.”UUA Article II Commission (Proposal)
With a backdrop of “Love as Justice,” we continue with our year long “Love as …” series centering on the UUA Bylaws Article II Proposal and asking what it means to hold “Love as Justice” continuing conversation and reflecting on Pastor’s AJ proposal that we center our Racial Justice work as Spiritual Practice and Rev Gordon’s question: “How do we discern together to survive and even thrive using our beloved denomination as a our bedrock for justice?”

This is a BIPOC Only space. If you’re a white ally, feel free to pass this invitation along to your BIPOC friends.
Community Gatherings are conversations about the theme for the month, as well as other topics pertaining to BIPOC folks. We generally stay together for 2 1/2 hours, but you are welcome to stay for as long or as short a time as suits you.
We always have an extended check-in and everyone will have the opportunity to share what is important in our lives with the community because we believe our lives and experiences as BIPOC folks are sacred texts followed by a discussion.
Sometimes we have a large crowd and sometimes just a few folks, but we are committed to always holding this space for anyone who may wish to join us.
We hope to see you soon!
