Online Via Zoom – Congregational discussion on the proposed 8th Principle (With Crystle Reid and Ryan Frizzell)

On November 27, delegates will vote at a Special Meeting of CUC members on the adoption of a new 8th Principle.

“We, the member congregations of the Canadian Unitarian Council, covenant to affirm and promote:

Individual and communal action that accountably dismantles racism and systemic barriers to full inclusion in ourselves and our institutions”

We are holding a congregational discussion at our Sunday Service so that delegates from UUEstrie can better vote on behalf or our community and to share the work of the Dismantling Racism Study group that led to it’s creation.
