In Support of Action for Love and Justice
I’ve been thinking of you and hope you are well. I hope that you are keeping your mind and heart open as the pandemic of racism has been laid bare on our screens these past couple weeks. Some among us have long known the real story about race in our country; some of us are just now waking up to it.
If you are a Person of Color, I’m holding you in my heart. And if you are African American, or identify as Black, I want to make sure you’ve seen this Pastoral Letter to Black Unitarian Universalists by Rev. Lauren Smith.
Everyone, if like me you’ve been reading, watching, and listening, at times past the point of outrage to the point of nausea, you might welcome a connection to a larger network of Unitarian Universalists. Here are pages created by the Unitarian Universalist Association in support of action for love and justice.
- The latest message from Rev. Dr. Susan Frederick-Gray urges all UUs not to turn away from what’s been exposed in the past months, and especially the past couple weeks.
- From the Love Resists campaign a guide to figuring out your involvement in the midst of chaos: Risk, Courage and Discernment.
- A call to moral action from the UUA: Stop Calling the Police and Start Eradicating Anti-Blackness.
