April 2017 UUA Board Meeting

LREDA Board Supports UU White Supremacy Teach In
The Board of The Liberal Religious Educators Association (LREDA) encourages our members to support and participate in the UU White Supremacy Teach In
. This call to action and worship comes from a growing network of UUs--religious professionals and and lay leaders from both within and outside congregations--led by UUs of color and white UUs working together.
Congregations are committing to discuss the realities of racism and white supremacy in our congregations, in our Association, and in our faith on April 30th or May 7th. We support this movement and encourage your participation. Learn more and sign up here.
As a continental organization, we are aware that not all LREDA members are connected with the UUA. Nevertheless, our Unitarian, Universalist, and Unitarian Universalist faith calls us to dismantle white supremacy in our congregations and wider communities, whether in the U.S. or Canada.
