Reminder: ARE GA Debriefs on July 13th & 21st

==========================

Hello ARE members and friends!

This has been a rough few weeks, and so many of us are just trying to hold our communities together now.  The grief has been overwhelming.  Again and again, we've heard news of Black men killed by police, protesters being brutalized, whole cities in pain.

ARE held an online vigil on the 8th, the closing words of which are here:

... and it will likely be the first of many.  Healing spaces are crucial for us.

Today, two more UU Leaders of Color wrote about their struggles:

Our work continues.

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.

Our Mission

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.
