Our Journey Toward Racial Justice: Crafting a Congregational Statement of Commitment

This has been a year where racial justice has been on our hearts and minds, and many people are looking for ways to respond.  Our Board of Trustees, Race for Justice Action Team, and our church Youth group believe this is the time for our church to speak out about its commitment to, and vision for, where we want to go next as a church in our journey toward racial justice.  To that end, we are hosting a 1 hour zoom session to collect your ideas so they can serve as the basis for a proposed congregational statement of commitment for racial justice.  The statement will be voted on by the congregation, and it needs to reflect our congregation, so we encourage all members to attend this meeting. 

TheZoom meeting will take place on Sunday November 15 from 11:15AM to 12:15PM.

After a short introduction, members will be placed into small chat rooms to discuss the following questions:

  • How do our UU values call us to do the work of racial justice?
  • What does our church want to be known for in the work of racial justice?
  • What specific actions should our church take for racial justice?

Following small group discussion, participants can provide written responses using a quick, easy format. The information will later be used by the Race for Justice Action Team to draft a congregational statement of commitment regarding racial justice which will then be presented to the congregation for consideration.
