Updated 1/4/23 – Rev. Karen and the 8th Principle Project Team are facilitating a number of activities in the near future to help us learn more and take actions to dismantle racism and other oppressions in ourselves and our institution. We hope you will find something in these offerings to engage you in this critical justice work.
- “Racial Justice at JRUUC- a Facilitated Discussion” Sunday January 22 at 4:00-6:00 PM on Zoom
This activity will utilize a structured tool for analyzing the state of racial justice within our congregation.
- Book Discussion: Me and White Supremacy by Layla F. Saad on Zoom
A 4-week series on Sundays at 1:00-3:00 pm, February 12 through March 5
This is a powerful tool of self-reflection and deep sharing – please commit to all four sessions. Please contact Jeanette Clawson if you’d like to join or have questions. The book is available at “A Room of One’s Own” at 2717 Atwood Ave. or on the internet.
- “Building Our Racial Awareness” – a monthly open discussion on Zoom
Fourth Sundays of each month at 4:00-6:00 pm, starting on February 26
Participants will be invited to bring news items related to racism in our local community to facilitate discussion and to sharpen our awareness of the inequities surrounding us here at home.
If you have questions or comments on these offerings or the 8th Principle Project, please contact Team members Randy Coloni, Erik Gunn, Eva Wingren, and Jeanette Clawson by using this form. Or talk with us during coffee hour!
We look forward to working with you on this important effort.
