UUFR’s Anti-Racism Ministry (ARM) team coordinates the Fellowship’s racial justice work. Our mission is to help UUFR become an anti-racist congregation. For all of us this is a process, whether we’re working on our own attitudes toward race, raising awareness of implicit biases in our Fellowship or addressing more overt racism in our communities.
To support its mission, ARM is continuing to offer a series of Living the Pledge to End Racism workshops during the 2020 – 2021 church year. During the workshop, participants can explore their own experience with people of other races, examine the problems of micro-aggressions, learn how to speak up when they witness racist acts, and examine their own implicit biases. Each participant can develop an individualized action plan to support the work toward ending racism.
In addition to the Living the Pledge workshops, the Anti-Racism Ministry will also host a variety of shorter discussions and training programs on various aspects of racism. These will be announced in the Chalice and on the ARM bulletin board outside of Founders Hall.
Please join us for this important journey.
