Discerning Race and Power, Part 2
Join us Sunday Mornings from 9 - 9:50 AM for our on-going discussion of the question: How can we make our congregation more racially and culturally diverse?
In an increasingly multicultural world, more and more Unitarian Universalist Congregations are asking some version of that question. When Unitarian Universalists address that question, they often begin by focusing on how our congregations welcome and include those we consider racially and culturally 'other'. However, experience has shown that the transformational work necessary to become the "anti-racist/multicultural faith community" Unitarian Universalists seek to be begins with ourselves - as individuals, congregations, and members of diverse communities.
We will meet in the Community Room and childcare is provided. If you have questions, can't attend buy would like to receive the content, or are in need of childcare, please contact Ashley at email@example.com.
11/17: Discerning Race and Power, Part 2
This workshop offers a variety of experiential ways to explore definitions of racism and invites participants to consider the difference between racial prejudice and racism. Participants are introduced tot he ideas that racism is a system that leads to particular economic, cultural, sociological and political outcomes; and that those outcomes exist independently of the intentions of individuals in the culturally dominant group.
11/24: Power at Work in Your Congregation
This workshop develops participants' skills to identify visible and invisible ways congregational norms, culture, policies, and practices intentionally reinforce White privilege and dominant White culture while marginalizing People of Color and others marginalized by race or ethnicity. The workshop introduces definitions of power and authority and invites participants to share perspectives on how power is held and exercised in their congregation. The group creates a power road map for the congregation, which helps surface patterns in the way the congregation grants formal and informal authority and power to the people in particular roles, positions and groups.
