As part of our faith journey as Unitarian Universalists, we are regularly challenged by the ways race and racism affect our lives and our spirituality. Within our congregations, we are creating space to build a community of care among UU People of Color, opportunities to explore deeper questions around race, culture and our religious values.
We invite UU People of Color in the Greater Raleigh-Durham area to gather for lunch and a facilitated meeting. We will have worship led by local UU Religious Professionals of Color. Our goal is to nurture new relationships between UU People of Color in the area, discuss some of the historical development of UU People of Color and anti-racism efforts, and learn more about what the community needs and interests are among those who attend. We will share a new working timeline chronicling the major milestones and development of UU People of Color ministries as a background to address local opportunities and challenges.
Please RSVP with Diane Blount Cantu99797@aol.com ideally by January 11, 2020. We ask participants to bring a side dish to share if they are able for lunch. We will have several main dishes catered. The event is open to UU People of Color and People of Color interested in Unitarian Universalism.

DRUUMM recognizes every Community of Color is impacted differently, and each community maintains its own unique identity and culture. People of Color/Person of Color/Community of Color is a political identity of survival and being in resistance to racism and colonialism, one that builds solidarity and create positive change.
