Racial Justice Sunday–How Are We Called?

Sunday, August 5, 10 a.m. to noon at the Meadowbrook Community Center

The Racial Justice Team is hosting the second Social Justice Sunday of the summer at the Meadowbrook Community Center. It will start with a potluck brunch from 10 to 10:30am, with some discussion questions for this time to help us get to know one another.

From 10:30 to 11:45 a.m., the Racial Justice Team will lead us in reflecting on the theme “How Are We Called?” We will consider ways in which racial justice informs how we live our UU faith and express our Principles, and in turn how our faith enhances our racial justice efforts. To build supportive community, we will share storytelling from our recent UUA Ware Lecturer Brittany Packnett and some of our UUC team members. There will be time for all to share in small groups. We will have the opportunity to grow together towards “collective liberation” from the impact of racial injustice, through increasing our awareness, engaging in reflective practice, and identifying ways we can take action.

Childcare will be available during the program, from 10:30 to 11:45 a.m.

What to bring: A brunch dish to share and your own dishware, cup and utensils if you’d rather not use compostables. Please bring your potluck item pre-cut and with a labeled serving utensil and platter/bowl you’ll take back home with you.

UUC will provide: Coffee, tea and compostable plates, bowls, cups and utensils.

The Racial Justice Team includes members and friends of UUC who work together as a core group to commit to ongoing learning and engage in planning education and action events. New members are welcome, and we ask that those interested contact one of the co-chairs to learn more about the team and what is involved in being a member. Co-chairs are Roberta Ray and Betty Williams.
