Food for Thought: Racial Justice and Theology

Food for Thought: Racial Justice: What’s UU Theology Got to Do with It?
Thursday March 18, 7:30pm

Save the date! We welcome our panel: Rev. Claire, Kyle Johnson, and Parisa Parsa. At the 2020 General Assembly, the UUA Commission on Institutional Change presented the findings of their 2-year study of the lived experiences of people of color in the UUA and in UU congregations. Among the many interesting conclusions in the study report was the idea that UUs should acknowledge anti-oppression work as a theological mandate. They wrote:

* These times require a liberatory faith that invites us each into the spiritual work of empathy and healing.
* If freedom and individualism are our most important values, we have little to offer in these times.

Our panel for this event includes Reverend Claire and Parisa Parsa, both UU ministers, and Kyle Johnson, MTS (Master of Theological Studies). They will share their answers to the question “What does our theology require of us with regard to anti-oppression work?”

Please join us. There will be opportunities to ask questions.
