All of us are impacted by racial bias. No matter where we are on the “awareness spectrum,” we all have the capacity to stretch, grow, and take our awareness to the next level. By enhancing our awareness of racial bias, we’re better able to address its presence in our lives, in our community, and in the world. This is a unique opportunity to partner with people of color associated with this Fellowship in this awareness journey.

In November we will offer:

Videos and Discussion of Asian Stereotypes (60 minutes)
Register here for the Friday, Nov. 13, 2 pm: https://uufws.org/virtual-next-level-awareness-Nov-13
OR
Register here for the Saturday, Nov. 14, 1 pm session: https://uufws.org/virtual-next-level-awareness-Nov-14

After viewing 3 short videos together, we’ll discuss some questions that people might be afraid to ask; some serious, some humorous, and some that might seem rude for fear of offending, i.e., “Where are you from?”

Participants who attend three (3) or more sessions addressing racial bias (including educational offerings by similarly missioned UUFWS groups), will be formally recognized in Spring 2021. A Special Recognition will also recognize such Participants when the building reopens.

Let’s take our awareness to the next level on this crucial issue that supports each of our Guiding Principles!

*The inherent worth and dignity of every person
*Justice, equity and compassion in human relations
*Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations
*A free and responsible search for truth and meaning
*The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large
*The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all
*Respect for the interdependent web of all existence, of which we are a part.
