Description

Dismantling White Supremacy and Building Liberation as Unitarian Universalists

Join fellow UUs from around the Northern New England District for inspiring worship, a thought-provoking program led by Aisha Hauser and Liz Loeb, time to connect with one another, and our annual business meeting! People of all ages are invited to attend. Youth (ages 14-18) are welcome to be a part of our regular programming. Children (ages 2-13) will have their own fun programming for the day, led by Religious Educator Sandra Greenfield.

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION: We will spend a majority of our time together engaging in a program on dismantling white supremacy and building liberation as Unitarian Universalists. The program will be designed and facilitated by Lena Gardner and Aisha Hauser, a nationally recognized multi-racial and mixed identity team offering over 30 years of shared experience in liberation and justice work.

We live in a world shaped by intersecting systems of oppression, both present and inherited. These systems separate all of us from our full humanity, and aim violence directly at Brown, Black, and Indigenous communities in order to preserve a system of dominance under the cover of normalcy.

When systems of oppression meet the wiring of our brains and nervous systems, we inherit internalized biases that tell us some groups of people are safer, better, and more deserving than others. These biases are often subtle, hidden, and work in compliance with a system of power that preserves the status quo. It is our responsibility to see, witness, and shift these patterns so that we can shift the violence of white supremacy in our communities and institutions.

Please join us for a day of connection and exploration as we learn to more deeply understand our own biases and the biases that continue to shape our faith institutions. In a supportive and thoughtful environment, we will work together to ask how we might better practice our faith by moving towards collective liberation and shared interdependence, and more clearly recognize and resist structures that seek to center a oppressive status quo. Expect to deepen your understanding, build new relationships, and question your assumptions throughout a lively day of large group work, interactive activities, small group engagement, personal reflection, and spiritual muscle.
