“Diversity! Equity! Inclusion!” Speaker/Discussion Series (via Zoom)

Dates: Tuesdays, 12/7, 1/18, 2/1, 3/1, 7:00-8:30 pm. For Zoom links, click on the date on the church calendar

The first three events will be discussion format for UUCM members and friends led by the Rev. Michael Crumpler, LGBTQ & Multicultural Programs Director for the Unitarian-Universalist Association. Rev. Crumpler will introduce the UUA’s Commission for Institutional Change 2020 report, “Widening the Circle of Concern,” and facilitate a discussion with our members. Although not required, you are encouraged to read this report which analyzes structural and systemic racism and white supremacy culture within Unitarian Universalism and was written over a three year period. This is sure to be a very interesting discussion and so necessary for the strength and survival of our institution as we move into the future.

We affirm that individual and systemic racism must be actively confronted and eliminated for there to be equity, peace and justice in our country and the world.
