Racism Book/Study Group- Moved to 1st Wed this month

7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

A new Racism Book/Study Group began in July. It will generally meet monthly on second Wednesdays of the month except in the months the social justice potluck happens when we’ll move to first Wednesday. It will be sharing and listening until everyone has had a chance to share once and then discussion.  We started with UUs of Color. To purchase, go to lulu.com and search Unitarian Universalists of Color, you will likely be offered a coupon by going through the home page. It comes both as a paperback and an ebook. There will also be copies for sale and loan on the ERC table during Fellowship Hour.) 

If you miss any of the meetings and would like to talk about the book in a group, please let Treva know and if there is enough interest additional dates will be added. Possible dates are August 29 and September 26, after the worship service on a Sunday is also possible.

For August we will read Centering and then likely move on to other books by people of color within and outside of UUism. Treva Burger will lead the group, contact her with questions or if you would like to buy a book from her, trevawb@gmail.com.

All are welcome and asked to do the reading in advance.
