Racial Justice Task Force

View and join this group on Church Center
With UU Bloomington’s adoption of the 8th principle, the Racial Justice Task Force will intentionally focus on ways we, as one part of this congregation, can truly “walk the walk” of the principle.  Together we are  journeying toward spiritual wholeness by working to build a diverse multicultural Beloved Community by our actions that accountably dismantle racism and other oppressions in ourselves and our institutions.

We have identified four major themes that will guide our activities during this phase of our journey:

  • We will deepen our understanding of racial injustice and its historical context.
  • We will raise our awareness of current racial justice issues in our communities – issues that may be invisible to many of us in our day-to-day lives.
  • We will build and strengthen relationships with Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) in our communities.
  • We will engage in service activities led by BIPOC groups.

As we journey, we will ask ourselves:

  • What have we failed to see that has allowed racism and other oppressions to continue?
  • What needs to change on personal and institutional levels to dismantle racism and other oppressions?
  • How can the task force advance these changes?
