We honor the first peoples of the Americas. We grieve the genocide that European colonization brought, and acknowledge our Unitarian and Universalist complacency in it. We seek honest restitution in relationship with those we have harmed.

Children and Youth Religious Education
Seeing our own Bias
Kristen Schumacher, RE Coordinator
Our “Being the Change” curriculum covers topics such as “affirming our identities, listening with love, becoming better informed, finding humanity in ourselves and in others, and facing crisis together.” Its purpose is to strengthen participants’ sense of identity, and to teach social comprehension skills.
We’ll also raise awareness of important issues such as bias and microaggressions, and will give kids the skills they need to ensure justice, equity, and compassion in their relationships (2nd Principle). In addition, strong social comprehension promotes peace, liberty, and justice in our world community (6th Principle).
