As a faith community that aspires to be welcoming and culturally diverse, we have work to do. The history of our country and our UU faith have left us a heritage of white supremacy that we often cannot even see. It is the air we breathe. Achieving cultural diversity will demand more than just the desire to do so. “Knotty Conversations,” a five-part online webinar series hosted by the UUA, is intended for individuals of any racial/ethnic identity who are navigating the challenges of dismantling white supremacy in and with their congregations.
Several First UU members attended the first Knotty Conversations webinar on Cultural Appropriation. But you need not have attended that webinar to participate in the next webinar: Calling Out, Calling In, and Staying Together. This webinar will focus on strategies for offering feedback when an individual or a group has behaved in racist, oppressive, or harmful ways. The webinar will take place Tuesday, February 25 from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. You can participate online in the comfort of your home or join a group of us at the First UU Meeting House. Wherever you plan to participate, register online before 12 p.m. on Friday, February 21. If you’d like to join us at the Meeting House please email Peggy Owen-Sands at [email protected] so we know to expect you.
