Educates Unitarian Universalists about class awareness and inclusion – empowering our religious movement to dismantle classism within our congregations and communities

UU Class Conversations was founded to break the silence about class in our lives, counter the stereotypes and myths that justify unequal opportunity, and reduce classism in our congregations and UU organizations, our communities, and the world.

Today there is a serious dialogue happening in our county about the growing inequality between the very rich and the rest—the one percent and the ninety-nine percent. Escalating inequality has profound implications for the health of our communities, the living standards of the people in our country, the future prospects for our children, and the distribution of political power going forward.

As Unitarian Universalists, we aspire to live out our seven Principles in the world, in our religious communities, and in our hearts. UU Class Conversations believes that each of our Principles calls us to engage in this work around class. In particular, we believe that becoming a class-aware and class-inclusive religious community is deeply spiritual work. We believe that diversity makes us stronger—connecting us to the world.

    Building Bridges across Class and Race

    UU culture is seen as white, well-educated, professional and middle class. This workshop will explore how class and race shape one’s worldview. We will look at ways to use the gifts these differences bring to strengthen spirituality and social justice across faith and cultural borders. Presented by Kellie Kelly and Rev. Darrick Jackson.
