Gatherings and events

 

Taking a Stand for Racial Justice

Sunday, August 26 at 11:30 a.m. in The Friarplace

EUUC is writing our stand for Racial Justice. Learn why we take a Stand, how the process works, and how you can help. We want your ideas. Two meetings are scheduled, both after Sunday service: July 29 and August 26.

Bystander Training

Saturday, September 8 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in Chapman Hall

Aisha Hauser will be providing training on Bystander Training for racial justice for the entire congregation.  In this time of so many offenses, this training is designed to be interactive and to help us learn better how to notice, identify and find a solution to what we see/experience.  We will acquire the skills for action so we can act.  We have a significant and important role to play in the prevention and intervention of racial injustice that occurs not just on the large social screen but in the everyday lives of People of Color.  We look forward to seeing you at the training. Bring a sack lunch.
