As we face a world on fire and the dehumanizing impact of racism, we need one another more than ever for our own healing and liberation. DRUUMM invites Unitarian Universalists who identify as Black, Indigenous and People of Color to participate in our CA/HI (virtual) Caucus on Saturday, September 26. This will be held online via Zoom. We are organizing these member-led BIPOC spaces with the intention of deepening our connections with one another, being present to one another’s stories and truth, and fostering systems of care. This is an opportunity to meet other BIPOC UU’s from congregations in your area, experience our faith in new ways, and together help us build a more beloved community. This is our sacred work that makes space for the spirit and shapes our UU faith.

September 26 will be a time of celebration and creation. We will host a variety of offerings that center us, BIPOC UUs - who we are, what we bring to our faith community, how we want to connect with each other. now and in the future. We are grateful and very excited that Rev. Leslie Takahashi, Lead Minister at Mt. Diablo UU, Walnut Creek, and Chair of the UUA Commission on Institutional Change, will be joining us to speak on the work of the Commission. We are also privileged to hear from Rev. Carlton Smith, Regional Lead for the Pacific Western Region, founding member of Organizing Collective of Black Lives of Unitarian Universalism. Starting, renewing, deepening relationships, this is a reminder that We Got Us!

Registration will be accepted until Friday, September 25. For general information about our CA/HI caucus, please contact Linda Russell - lrrussell55@gmail.com.

The event is free, with online registration required https://bit.ly/DRUUMMCaucus or contact Dawn Robinson drobinson@uua.org or (617) 948-4241 if you have any questions about registration. The caucus leadership and program are centered around the geographic region, and participants may attend cross-region based on interest and schedule availability. We recognize that folks move and live with multiple consciousnesses of place and identity. Our partner group - the Allies for Racial Equity - will be hosting simultaneous White Antiracist Caucuses on Sept 12, Sept 19, and Sept 26.
