Call for Personal Stories of UU and Racism

February 1, 2018
  • In what ways have you or your group or community been hurt by current racist and culturally biased attitudes and practices within Unitarian Universalism?
  • In what ways have we, as a faith community, been living outside of our values and commitments?

The Unitarian Universalist Association's Commission on Institutional Change is looking for personal accounts and stories about how racism has affected individuals and groups within Unitarian Universalism at the personal, institutional, or systemic levels. The goal is to document incidents that occurred between individual Unitarian Universalists, within a congregational or Associational setting, or as a result of white-centeredness embedded within the greater Unitarian Universalist culture. The Commission asks you to respond to the questions above with specific examples. (Please note that no information provided in these testimonials will be shared with attribution without the prior consent of the author. The Commission is mindful that certain details in submissions can be revealing and commits to treating all submissions with full trust and confidence. The Committee has extended the deadline, which was originally Jan. 31, indefinitely.)
