Racial Justice Group
We are called to action.
There are many ways that we are each called to action on racial justice. As Unitarian Universalists, we are supported in this call through Amen to Uprising: A Commitment and Call to Action. “BECAUSE Unitarian Universalist congregations covenant to affirm the inherent worth and dignity of every person and promote justice, equity and compassion in human relations, we proclaim loudly, Black Lives Matter!”
ACT. LEARN. REFLECT. TOGETHER.
Our time together each month will create ample opportunities to learn, to succeed, to fail, to repair and to reflect in our journey. We’ll stay curious about how we might co-create healthy practices of action and reflection to ground us in this spiritual work.
TAKE ACTION TODAY.
We are compiling a list of racial justice campaigns and projects that are already happening here in Central Vermont. Please click over there to see what you can do– the Central Vermont ANTI-RACISM Action List. And if you have an action or connection to share, please forward it and we will add it to our list.
