Exhibiting Allied Behavior 
at General Assembly 2016

The Allies for Racial Equity Steering Committee invites and encourages ARE members attending General Assembly to participate in one of two webinars being offered on June 2 and June 7.

We'll learn from one another how to show up at GA in ways that will support the efforts to make this GA one in which black lives really do matter.

We'll explore how we can exhibit allied behavior in solidarity with DRUUMM and BLUU. Both organizations have asked ARE to be very visible at this GA.

Come, let's learn together!

White Resistance to Racial Justice Webinar

As you may know,  Allies for Racial Equity, in collaboration with the Church of the Larger Fellowship, is offering a series of webinars to support racial justice efforts and prepare participants for the upcoming UUA General Assembly this June.

The first two sessions can be viewed here:

The next two sessions of this series examined and addressed White Resistance to racial justice efforts. Those sessions will be posted here soon.

In our racial justice work, we often face at least some resistance "here", within in our own communities... sometimes even within ourselves..

What does that look like?

How do we respond?

How can we help one another through?

Guided by Beverly Daniel Tatum's Racial Identity Development Theory:

http://www.mccc.edu/pdf/cmn214/Class%203/Racial%20identity%20development.pdf

and some of our own experiences, we talked about how to recognize, address, and work through white resistance.... whether it's far away, or all too close to home.


Unitarian Universalist Allies for Racial Equity (ARE) exists as a response to a request by Diverse Revolutionary Unitarian Universalist Multicultural Ministries (DRUUMM), a UU People of Color Organization, for a group of white anti-racist allies to serve as partners in the journey of transforming our faith movement and the world. Our mission is to confront racism in ways that are accountable to communities of color by creating opportunities for white UUs to understand white privilege and unlearn white supremacy.

ARE would like to invite people who are working as white anti-racist allies to encourage their congregation’s involvement with the Black Lives Matter movement to join us on a networking and information sharing call.  What resources and strategies have been helpful in engaging your congregation?   Have you encountered resistance as you’ve tried to engage your congregation in the conversation?  What additional resources would you find helpful in your congregational work?  We’ll share some ideas and have time for you to share your thoughts and experiences as well.

If you’re an ARE member or supporter, please log in to our website to make sure your information is current, and renew your membership if it’s time for that, or consider making an extra contribution to support our programs.  Your support will help fund the platform we’ll be using to make these calls happen, as well as other initiatives of ARE such as our annual conference, assisting the initiation of and sustaining regional groups, expanding our website offerings, and supporting the work we do in partnership with DRUUMM.
