I will be at a conference this weekend, but I know that you will be in excellent hands with Rev. Mary Margaret Earl, who is head of the UU Urban Ministry.
The conference I’m attending is called “Revolutionary Love: Disruptive Ethics to Dismantle Racism.” It will be held at Middle Collegiate Church in New York City, and I’m looking forward to listening to some of the great voices in religious anti-oppression work like Van Jones, Jacqui Lewis, William Barber, and Brian McLaren. In these days when our own UUA is facing the systemic racism in their own hiring practices, I am excited to be moving beyond the UU world into the progressive intersection of multi-racial and multi-religious voices being offered in this conference. Hopefully, I will bring back some great insights to share with you all!
