About

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.

The opinions expressed in this forum are those of the individual writer and both comments and posts are moderated.

    I want to say hello to the group from the faraway hinterland of St Augustine, FL. I am a new friend of UUCA and am in residence in Maggie Valley 6 months of the year. In addition to sharing your conversation on social justice, this blog helps me to remain connected to the congregation even though many miles are between us during these winter months.
