Racial Justice

Black men, women and children are dying in our communities. Sometimes it’s at the hands of law enforcement officials. Sometimes it’s in jails. And sometimes it’s just from walking down the street. But it’s got to stop. As we witnessed the birth of the Black Lives Matter movement, FUSD felt called to take action. In Feb 2015, the congregation voted to put a Black Lives Matter banner on the side of our building to show our solidarity with the movement.

The Racial Justice Project invites you to join us in a discussion of Heather McGhee's book The Sum of Us, What Racism Cost Everyone and How We Can Prosper TogetherThe discussions will be held three different days at two different times: Sunday, January 16th at 1:00p, Monday January 17th at 1:00p, or Tuesday January 18th at 7:00p.  The discussions will be facilitated by Peggy Ulrich-Nims, who also has copies available.  You need not have read the book to participate in one of these three offerings.  

This is the zoom link for the discussions:

The Racial Justice Project strives to help our congregants educate themselves about current issues of race, racism, white privilege and racial justice and to share with them opportunities to become activists around these issues. We also endeavor to engage our neighboring communities in racial justice work. If you are interested in getting in on the ground floor of this effort, please contact us.

Free next Sunday?
