Beyond Diversity by Rev. Marisol Caballero
This sermon was preached by Rev. Caballero of the First UU Church of Austin, TX as a guest preacher in San Diego following the DRUUMM conference in January. I hope it is inspirational to you. If you would like to engage in further reading around racism and white privilege, I invite you to look at some of the links below the video.
If racism is a topic that you feel strongly about confronting in UUism, please consider coming to the ARE Conference in Ohio this March 14-16th, or the simultaneous people of color conference, if that is appropriate for you. Carpooling is available with Elizabeth Mount/ 720-560-5680 or firstname.lastname@example.org
