Race, Prejudice, and Unitarian/Universalism Today

When: 3 Sundays beginning March 26, 2017, 10:45 – 11:45 a.m.
Where: The Chapel

The goals of this series are to help participants to better understand the psychological and social factors related to racism and prejudice, and to address the racism and prejudice that they encounter in their lives.

This interactive program will review relevant topics related to racism including defining race, ethnicity, and culture, the nature of prejudice, micro aggressions, implicit bias, white privilege, and ways to foster tolerance. Brief readings will be presented during each session followed by discussion. Participants will be encouraged to share their own experiences. For questions or more information please talk to UUFS members Samuel Knapp and Kris Mordan or e-mail life.enrichment@uufs.org.
