Over the summer months, you are invited to engage in our racial justice work at your own speed and in your own time. We hope that you will find time to explore the resources we share and deepen your own learning so that when we re-engage in more formal programming in the fall, we will be grounded in our commitment and sustained from our depth of knowledge. This summer we are focused on three areas of growth.

The 8th UU Principle
Explore where UUs are in adopting an 8th principle:  https://www.uucwc.org/8th-principle-update-where-are-uus-in-adopting-across-the-faith/.  How do you feel about this effort? Let us know! kfamula@uufnn.org.

Who are You?
Don’t forget to join us for our Conversation Group!  This week we’ll be reflecting on Part 3 of Caste, by Isabel Wilkerson. All are welcome – even if you haven’t yet had time to read.
