Racial Justice at UUCMC
UUCMC acknowledges that white supremacy is ingrained in the very fabric of our society, institutions and government. We acknowledge that it is entrenched in our faith and the very walls of our own institution. We are committed to educating others and ourselves in the community to recognize and fight white supremacy wherever we may find it. We have utilized services, youth groups, forums, and small group meetings to examine our own racial bias and how that has affected our decisions and choices.
Our Racial Justice Task Force has been and will continue to be pursuing many different avenues that will aid us in this endeavor.
- Supporting Black Lives Matter (including our Statement of Conscience on Racial Justice)
- Voices of Black Experience
- Support for Black Lives Unitarian Universalist (BLUU)
- Sanctuary Working Group
- Ongoing dialogs on racial justice including Immigration Reform, Understanding Microaggressions and Sanctuary Work.
- Sharing the experience of visiting The Legacy Museum and National Memorial for Peace and Justice in Montgomery, AL in support of Equal Justice Initiative (EJI).
- Poor People’s Campaign
