Our faith journeys are enriched by our relationships with one another. We know how isolating it can feel to be one of the only BIPOC Unitarian Universalists in your congregation. Each year we endeavor to host regional caucuses, where you can get to know DRUUMM members in your area. This has led to beautiful collaborations and new connections. As we face a world on fire and the dehumanizing impact of racism, we need one another more than ever for our own healing and liberation. We are organizing these member-led BIPOC spaces with the intention of deepening our connections with one another, being present to one another’s stories and truth, and fostering systems of care. This is sacred work that makes space for the spirit and shapes our UU faith.
The DRUUMM Regional Caucuses will happen simultaneously on Saturday, September 18th from 4:00 PM to 6:30 PM Eastern Time (1:00 PM to 3:30 PM Pacific). Members will gather via our virtual Zoom room and caucuses will meet in breakout rooms with facilitators. Our agenda will center on relationship building, sharing your story, and checking in. We’ll be focusing our discussion on the ways we are sustained and uplifted as Unitarian Universalists. More details to follow. This is a BIPOC-only program. Free for members, $15 USD for interested BIPOC friends.
