Chris Crass is one of the leading voices in the country calling for and supporting white people to work for racial justice and men to work for feminism. He’s a social justice educator who writes and speaks widely on courage for racial justice, feminism for men, lessons from past movements, and creating healthy culture and leadership for progressive activism. His Unitarian Universalism grounds his liberatory vision and his approach to justice which is rooted in love.

Host congregations, University Unitarian Church and University Congregational United Church of Christ, are joined by a number of other faith communities and community organizations as co-sponsors to create a week of programs designed to nourish and connect activists and allies for racial justice. These events are intentionally multi-religious and open to all people of goodwill whose call to anti-racism is an embodiment of their values and/or spiritual practice.

Tell the voices of supremacy systems that they cannot have you, that you are stronger than they would ever allow you to believe, and that our movement is far more effective and stronger than they want us to understand, to feel in our bones, and to feel as tears of pain and sorrow roll down our faces."
