A Cincinnati UU Anti-Racism Learning Opportunity
Starting February 20, 2024, 7 pm Online
- Are you curious about the concepts of identity and difference? What do people mean when they talk about having privilege based on identity?
- Would you like to educate yourself to better address racism – to become a better anti-racist UU?
- Have you wondered how to help your congregation become more welcoming and inclusive across diverse ethnicities, races, and cultures?
- Would you like to meet other Cincinnati-area UUs who are invested in promoting racial justice?
If your answers are “yes,” please consider participating in this year’s UU Council of Greater Cincinnati’s Anti-Racism Circle program on Zoom for eight Tuesday evenings, 7-8:30 pm, beginning February 20, 2024. This free program builds on the success of the Anti-Racism Circle programming during 2021-2023 and is open to Cincinnati area UU adults, 18 or older, of all identities.
A curriculum from the UUA titled “Building the World We Dream About” is the starting point for this program. Building on 2023’s “BTWWDA I,” 2024’s BTWWDA II retains deep personal reflection and explores actions that individuals and their congregations can take to be up-standers. The interactive curriculum is designed to help Unitarian Universalists from all levels of multicultural experience to personally reflect on and share how we become better anti-racists. Topics to be explored include culture and identity, perspectives and privilege, and how we can learn from multiple truths and multiple realities.
Registration is required at: http://tinyurl.com/UUbuildtheworld2024. Please register by February 16. There is no course fee.
