“Be the Change!” is a six-session antiracist training program, giving Unitarian Universalist youth a starting place for discussions about the role of race, identity, and justice in living out their faith.

Youth are coming of age in an America that is increasingly diverse. Though much progress has been made in addressing the historic injustices of racism, racial disparities are still found in education, housing, the courts system, job opportunities and nearly every other corner of American life, impacting us all in the ugly divisions and inequalities racism creates.

It can be difficult to know where to start in dealing with problems so big, so grounding discussions in UU values and principles is essential. Be the Change! is a youth antiracism training developed by the Unitarian Universalist Association as a way to help youth begin resisting racism in ourselves, our faith communities and broader world.

Be the Change! is open to youth in middle and high school.  Youth who sign up should plan to attend all six sessions. To join Be the Change! please sign up through UUC Connect, here.
