Rev. Gaylor will help us explore ways to dismantle racism in Canadian Unitarian Universalism. A proposed 8th principle in the U.S., and discussed in Canada, calls on Unitarian Universalists to "build a diverse multicultural Beloved Community by our actions that accountably dismantle racism and other oppressions in ourselves and our institutions.” Whether or not this principle is adopted, it has important things to say to Unitarian Universalists. What does this mean for us at UUCD? How can we approach this conversation, and this work on ourselves and our institutions, with openness, humility, and sensitivity? Using stories from people of colour in Canadian UU congregations, we'll explore together.
