Dismantling Racism: Assessing Where We Are
We need your Input!
Despite all the disruptions to ‘normalcy’, the CUC’s Dismantling Racism Study Group
remains committed to our tasks, the first of which is to assess the racial justice work
we’re already doing.
We want to know…What actions and efforts are you and your congregation taking to
tackle the important task of racial justice? What has been your personal experience of
racism and racial justice work within Unitarian Universalism?
We are surveying individuals, not groups/congregations, and really want your frank and
honest feedback. Click here to do the survey right now! The survey will take about 15
minutes to complete.
Read on for some background.
Recently, there has been discussion at the Unitarian Universalist Association’s General
Assembly of adding an 8th principal (https://www.8thprincipleuu.org/) to our Unitarian
Universalist guiding principles, calling for our congregations to accountably dismantle
racism in our institutions and within ourselves. This precipitated the 2019 CUC
resolution which created our Dismantling Racism Study Group (follows).
No matter your thoughts, we need your personal responses to this survey
(https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/DRSGSurvey). We want to understand where we are
in order to lay out a path to where we want to be. The survey is entirely anonymous
unless you choose to provide your contact information.
Your participation in this survey is a testament to your commitment to racial justice
We hope you can take the time to complete it by April 30. Please encourage others
to do the same!
