Dear UUSA RE Parents,
Anti-Racism and Multiculturalism is an important part of UU religious education. In the fall we read the book Not My Idea: A Book About Whiteness by Anastasia Higgenbotham (https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/39979639-not-my-idea) and we typically read several books each year on the topic of racism. When we discuss our UU Principles we often talk about how we have a lot of work to do because our country (and our world) is not systematically set up to respect all people. I have been continually impressed with how much your children understand, but I think we all know that we need to keep learning and working.
Here is a list of resources for adults and children you might want to look at. It was forwarded to me by a fellow UU: bit.ly/ANTIRACISMRESOURCES<http://bit.ly/ANTIRACISMRESOURCES>
This is an interesting list that appeared in the New York Times:
The local organization Embrace Race helps families understand and work on racial justice. If you sign up for their emails they send along a lot of good information. https://www.embracerace.org/
Watch out for UU sponsored events at the national level. Here are two links:
There are many other local, state and national ways of getting involved. Please email me if you would like more information.
