The mission of the Racial Justice Ministry is to: raise awareness and understanding of and engagement with race and racism. This includes our individual and collective opportunities to achieve racial justice.
We are also guided by the UU 8th Principle, which asks us to: affirm and promote journeying toward spiritual wholeness by working to build a diverse multicultural Beloved Community by our actions that accountably dismantle racism and other oppressions in ourselves and our institutions.


These unstructured conversations are open to all interested individuals and offer opportunities to talk about recent events or personal experiences, related to racial justice, and to support one another. Drop in any time, stay as long as you want.
