This is Day 2 of the Workshop held over Zoom.

We, Unitarian Universalists, are called to build the Beloved Community.  To do that, UUs must attend to the
unfinished business of dismantling racism and oppression in our congregations and Association and with
our community partners.  How do we stand in solidarity with the social movements of our times and how do
they change us? How do we help to preserve and strengthen a multicultural democracy in this country?

This workshop addresses the 8th Principle and multicultural change as a developmental process for
congregations.  How have other UU congregations approached the spiritual and structural aspects of
moving more fully into our vision of the Beloved Community?  What tools will help you accomplish the
tasks?
