Inclusivity Forum Session 1 – Diverse Relationships and Families

Wednesday, February 2 – 4 pm PT | 5 pm MT | 6 pm CT | 7 pm ET | 8 pm AT

As part of the CUC’s commitment to dismantling systemic barriers to full inclusion, the Social Justice Team has planned three Inclusivity Forums, a FREE learning series that will focus on:

  • Becoming more conscious of privilege, power, and biases
  • Practice noticing our own discomfort that arises when our beliefs, opinions, biases are challenged, and our responses to it
  • How to shift out UU culture and communities to be more aware and intentionally inclusive

This first forum will focus on the experiences of UUs in diverse relationships and family structures within UU groups/congregations. This includes, but is not limited to, ethically non-monogamous relationships (where everybody’s informed consent is needed), polyamorous families/relationships, families where parents are no longer romantic partners but continue to co-parent and have family together, platonic families, and those who ‘do’ relationships and family outside of society’s norms.

Inclusivity Forum Session II – Welcoming People of All Dis/Abilities
Wednesday, March 2 – 4 pm PT | 5 pm MT | 6 pm CT | 7 pm ET | 8 pm AT

Materials will be shared with registrants in advance. At the forum, we’ll discuss how UU communities can become more inclusive. The CUC’s Responsibility Covenant will be used to promote safety for all in attendance. A caucus group will be available for those in diverse relationships/families should they prefer to discuss together.

This is a free session, with no registration form required. However, we’d like you to sign up on this Zoom link by JANUARY 19, so that we have an indication of who is attending, then email to receive your pre-package materials.
