The “Dismantling White Supremacy” Task Force will be hosting a workshop series at the UU meetinghouse entitled “Resisting White Supremacy.” The workshop consists of eight two-hour sessions, one night a week. The focus is on allowing white people to understand the racial component of their identity, and how to live with authenticity and integrity as a white person in a society grounded in white supremacy. Although the workshop is free, a very important part of the workshop is that participants need to commit to the entire eight weeks, not just come to a session or two.
Ken Wagner, president of the UUA’s Allies for Equity, has facilitated these workshops at more than a dozen congregations and community groups across New England. He will be speaking at the Sunday Service on January 20. The eight-session workshop begins Wednesday, January 30. The two-hour sessions will begin at 7:00 P.M.
We want to provide this workshop to our congregation, AND if there is room, open it up to our neighboring UU congregations.
If you are interested in participating or have any questions, please contact Susan Rice or Steve Rice at 413-253- 4485.
