Mission

The Asian/Pacific Islander Caucus (“A/PIC”) of the UUA People of Color Organization, DRUUMM (Diverse and Revolutionary Unitarian Universalist Multicultural Ministries) endeavors to build a safe and sacred community among DRUUMM members based in the US or Canada who identify, wholly
or in part, as Asian, Asian-American, and/or Pacific Islander.

To this end, we pledge to:

  • Support one another in our spiritual journeys as UUs;
  • Create a supportive, resilient, and spiritual community that fosters identity formation and ministers to our culturally-specific needs, honoring the complex diversity of Asian and Pacific Islander histories and cultures;
  • To effectively advocate for our needs within Unitarian Universalism;
  • Expand and implement existing anti-racism and anti-oppression work of the UUA by sharing with others our A/PI perspective and experiences, especially addressing the role of white supremacy in our denomination and communities;
  • Provide advocacy and education for the respectful use of authentic API heritage, culture and customs, and spiritual traditions within our spiritual communities;
  • Work in synergy with DRUUMM and other partners, including BLUU, to collectively identify and transform the structures of oppression towards an equitable, inclusive, and just community
