Building an anti-racist movement among white Unitarian Universalists in ways that are accountable to communities of color.  

  • Home

Allies for Racial Equity Mission is to

  • Confront racism in ways that are accountable to communities of color.
  • Understand whiteness and privilege.
  • Unlearn and challenge white supremacy.

ARE Steering Committee's Mission is to

  • Build an antiracist movement by engaging white Unitarian Universalists in the mission of ARE.
  • Foster accountable relationships with and serve as an organizational ally to communities of color.
  • Provide anti-racist, anti-oppressive, multicultural leadership development to ARE members and leaders in the UUA.

We recently added ARE’s endorsement to DRUUMM’s Call for Renewal, and encourage all UU’s engaged in racial justice work to do so individually as well.

What resources and strategies have been helpful in engaging your congregation?   Have you encountered resistance as you’ve tried to engage your congregation in the conversation?  What additional resources would you find helpful in your congregational work?  Join the conversations about congregational involvement with the Movement for Black Lives and Black Lives Matter with ARE's Fall Webinar Series!     

If you’re an ARE member or supporter, please log in to make sure your information is current, and renew your membership if it’s time for that.  Consider making an extra contribution toward our ongoing racial justice work.  Your donation will help with funding the platforms we use to make resources available, assisting with initiation and sustaining regional groups, hosting ARE's annual conference, expanding our offerings, and supporting the work we do in partnership with DRUUMM.

What's New at ARE?

Thanks to all who participated in webinars, GA, debriefs, vigils, and conversations to contribute ideas to the discussions we've had over the last few months!  With your help, themes emerged that we on the ARE Steering Committee will be taking action on throughout this next year: Support, Resources, and Connection.

If you have not yet read and signed on to support the Movement for Black Lives’ Vision for Black Lives policy platform, which ARE endorses, we encourage you to do so.  We look forward to being in conversation with you to see how we can better respond to this powerful call to action, both together and individually, inside and outside our UU faith communities.

Thanks to all who signed up to participate in Monthly Support Calls!  Organizing emails went out earlier today and we will be beginning the calls in November. Yes!  That's right around the corner!  

Clergy calls will be on Wednesdays, and Laity calls will be on Thursdays & Sundays.  If there is enough interest, Seminarian calls will be on Tuesdays.  Details will be posted and emailed early next week.

Thanks also, to all those who offered to join the Education & Resources Team!  We'll start meeting next week as well, and will be working on some challenging new resources for UU anti-racist practice.  If you're interested in joining this great group, please send us an email and we'll add you to the list.

No doubt, our meetings and the conference this coming weekend will lead us to still more ways ARE can support Unitarian Universalists working toward racial justice.  We are truly privileged to be in this struggle together, and look forward to connecting with you soon!
