A small group of EUUC members have formed the Racial Justice Committee. Our Mission Statement is “to promote through education and action a culture inside ourselves, the congregation, and the world at large that extends inherent worth and dignity to people of all races and ethnicities.” We are providing a variety of opportunities for others and ourselves to examine our own values and practices, to identify issues and to address the disparities in our country due to race and class.
