Welcome to the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Asheville’s social justice blog. It is a space where we are working together to explore our relationships to social justice work both as individuals and as a congregation. We are deeply rooted in the Unitarian Universalist legacy and are seeking ways to empower our congregation to engage in this work together.
As a congregation, we are committed to working toward a world in which Black lives truly matter. Our work is focused on three paths: inner work for us all to come to terms with our own attitudes on race; opportunities to build relationships with African Americans and groups in the community working on racial equality; and efforts to address the larger institutional racism that suffuses this country. In service to that work, we have begun using this blog as a place to curate resources and get out information regarding anti-oppression work in the community.
There are multiple contributors to this blog. If you are affiliated with the congregation and would like to submit a personal reflection, please contact Associate Minister Lisa Bovee-Kemper for more information. If you are not affiliated with the congregation, we are excited to expand the conversation and would love to hear your thoughts in the comments on a particular posted topic.
