As part of our faith journey as Unitarian Universalists, we are regularly challenged by the ways race and racism affect our lives and our spirituality. Within our congregations, we are creating space to build a community of care among UU People of Color, opportunities to explore deeper questions around race, culture and our religious values. We will meet for fellowship, worship, creative art, and action from Friday January 21 through Sunday January 23, 2022. This gathering is co-hosted in partnership with the First Unitarian Universalist Church of San Antonio and DRUUMM. 

We invite UU People of Color in Texas and beyond to gather for Friday dinner and a day of worship and other programs on Saturday including breakfast and lunch. Our goal is to nurture new relationships between UU People of Color in the area, discuss some of the historical development of UU People of Color and anti-racism efforts, and learn more about what the community needs and interests are among those who attend. We will share a new working timeline chronicling the major milestones and development of UU People of Color ministries as a background to address local opportunities and challenges.

Ayanna Kafi, DRUUMM President, will be preaching the Sunday Service.

Please register by January 18th, 2022 so we can arrange appropriate logistics. The event is open to UU People of Color and People of Color interested in Unitarian Universalism. This is an in-person event, and currently will not have a virtual option due to the cost and logistics. The Sunday service will be livestreamed at a later date.

DRUUMM recognizes every Community of Color is impacted differently, and each community maintains its own unique identity and culture. People of Color/Person of Color/Community of Color is a political identity of survival and being in resistance to racism and colonialism, one that builds solidarity and create positive change.
