In 2017, in the midst of another racially charged moment in Unitarian Universalism, our Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) appointed a Commission on Institutional Change, charged with “supporting long-term cultural and institutional change that redeems the essential promise and ideals of Unitarian Universalism,” specifically with regard to systemic racism and white supremacy culture in our congregations and the UUA. They issued their report and recommendations, Widening the Circle of Concern, in June, 2020, at our UUA General Assembly. Today’s service introduces their findings, and points to an emerging future for us all. I encourage you to read the report. Read it online or download it here.
Or order it from inSpirit, the UUA bookstore here.
