In 2017-2018, the Racial Justice Action Team will be focused on meeting goals set by its subgroups in providing access to educational events to the Fellowship community, finding opportunities to engage in action with our geographic communities, and auditing our Fellowship’s words and actions through a lens of racial justice and intersectionality.
We will also offer Beloved Conversations, which is a curriculum created by the Dr. Mark Hicks of the Fahs Collaborative of the Meadville Theological School (Unitarian Universalist). This program was designed for Unitarian Universalist congregations to enable them to have deep and impactful conversations about race and ethnicity. Participants in Beloved Conversations will:
* Deepen our awareness of the brokenness of racism
* Explore blockages that slow our social & spiritual journey toward wholeness
* Develop anti-racist skills & habits
