Dear UU Friends and Colleagues,
Greetings from DRUUMM (Diverse & Revolutionary Unitarian Universalist Multicultural Ministries), Unitarian Universalism’s oldest and largest people-of-color collective. I am writing to ask if you would help share the invitation for our upcoming local gatherings with interested Black, Indigenous & People of Color in your congregations and communities. We hear and strive to be responsive to the needs of our BIPOC UUs by creating opportunities to connect more deeply and support one another’s faith formation. These gatherings are free and include a shared meal. The gatherings will include worship, time for deeper relationship building, and a featured program around The Stories We Tell About People of Color In Unitarian Universalism and Our Imagination of the Future of our Faith.
Interested BIPOC UU can learn more and register online or email us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. Here are the links:
***Both gatherings will be hybrid, with the option to join via Zoom.
DRUUMM builds on the legacy of many who came before us, and our ministry strives to be multicultural, intersectional, agitating, liberating, and transformative. In a world harmed by white supremacy culture, we work to generate and nurture faithful cultures of solidarity, advocacy, and care. DRUUMM is proof that a diverse Unitarian Universalism exists. We are a front door for people new to the faith and a spiritual home that nourishes and retains people of color in our liberal religious tradition.
Many thanks for your consideration and support.
Rev. Joseph Santos-Lyons
