COMING IN JANUARY
Sunday, January 7 at 12:30pm in the Chapel
Justice, Race & Unitarian Universalism Teach-In
In the last year we have seen a public eruption of violence and hatred related to race. Also in the last year, our denomination and leadership were called to examine white supremacy and institutional racism within the UUA. As movements such as Black Lives Matter continue to grow, where do we fit as Unitarian Universalists? Where and how are we called to act? Join the conversation about justice, race, and putting our UU values into practice! On Sunday, January 7 at 12:30pm in the Chapel, Cora McCold will lead a “Teach-in” on Justice, Race, and Unitarian Universalism. Ms. McCold, a lifelong Unitarian Universalist, recently completed her Masters of Divinity at Harvard where she focused on racial justice, leadership, and organizational development. Recently she served as the Justice Ministries intern at the New England Region of the UUA. Cora's approach to multicultural, anti-racist and anti-oppressive work is shaped by her theology and experiences of community. As a coach, facilitator, and trainer, she specializes in supporting communities to live their values.
