Racial Justice

The systemic fair treatment of people of all races that results in equitable opportunities and outcomes for everyone. … Race Forward

We, the member congregations of the Unitarian Universalist Association, covenant to affirm and promote: journeying toward spiritual wholeness by working to build a diverse multicultural Beloved Community by our actions that accountably dismantle racism and other oppressions in ourselves and our institutions.

Racial Justice Sub-Committee Mission

The Racial Justice Sub-Committee of the UUCSR Social Justice Committee seeks to provide opportunities for members of the Congregation to learn to recognize and combat racism, white supremacy, and other forms of oppression in our own lives, in our faith community, and in the various spheres of our local and national civic institutions.

The members of the Sub-Committee work to accomplish the mission by sponsoring educational programs, collaborating with BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and People of Color) led organizations in our local community, and promoting the implementation of the Eighth Principle in the congregation.

The Sub-Committee welcomes justice-seekers to join our monthly meetings held virtually on the third Monday of each month at 7:00 PM. Contact Jeannie Gross (jgross@uucsr.org or 516.472.2914) for a link to meetings or to join the Sub-Committee mailing list.

Outreach on a regular basis includes participation with the following local organizations:

· Equal Opportunity Council (EOC)
· Roosevelt Community Gardens
· Releasing Aging People in Prisons (RAPP)
· Upholding Humanity
