Widening the Circle Of Concern
Presented to the UUCB Board of Trustees
September 1, 2021
Dear UUCB Family,
You may have heard about the 2020 UUA “Widening the Circle of Concern” book on systemic racism and supremacy culture in the UUA and in UU Congregations.
You may also know that, in August, 2020, UUCB created a Widening the Circle of Concern Task Force that has spent the last year reading the book and coming up with specific recommendations for UUCB.
We are happy to announce that the Task Force has completed its review and compiled its report. At the September 1 Board meeting, we made a presentation, which included a discussion of some of our recommendations. The final report of the Task Force is available for you to read here:
Widening the Circle of Concern Task Force Report to UUCB Board and Congregation
Please see October’s Beacon for additional information about the report’s recommendations and ideas for next steps.
If you have comments or questions, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
