Racial Equity and Inclusion
In May 2017 together with nearly 700 Unitarian Universalist congregations, ERUUF offered Sunday services (podcast for May 21, 2017)) and programs in support of dismantling racism and the system of white supremacy that puts the lives of Black and Brown people in harm’s way, and in celebration of the love and courage People of Color have created in response and resistance.

Join members of the Multicultural Team and Rev. Cayer to learn more about events within our movement from 1968-70 that caused People of Color, mainly African Americans, to leave the UUA for decades, if not permanently. We'll talk about what happened then, and what's happening in our religious movement now.
As they’ve done for the past five years, the Multicultural Team will continue to offer classes, films, workshops and discussion in support of ERUUF’s commitment to racial equity and inclusion. The next Dismantling Racism Workshop will be October 13-14; sign ups begin soon.
