Restoration and Renewal: A Spiritual Circle for People of Color is pleased to offer this new series of programs 

Next Level Awareness!

All of us, white people and people of color, 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.  Please join us in these upcoming programs designed for our Fellowship in a safe and supportive environment.

In Fall 2020, we will offer:

Friday, Oct. 16 @ 2 pm OR Saturday, Oct. 17 @ 1 pm: A Video and Discussion of Jane Elliott’s Blue Eyes Brown Eyes awareness model (90 mins). Register below.

Friday, Nov. 13 @ 2 pm OR Saturday, Nov. 14 @ 1 pm: Videos and Discussion of Asian Stereotypes (60 minutes). Register below.

In 2021, we will offer three (3) 60-90-minute interactive programs including panel discussions, role playing, and personal self-assessment.  These will also be via Zoom, and offered twice in a month.

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.
