About Us

UU Class Conversations helps members of congregations and UU organizations explore class and classism through a Unitarian Universalist lens. Expanding on our faith’s ongoing diversity and anti-oppression work, from race to gender to sexual orientation, our interactive workshops build on UU principles to give participants a better understanding of the role that social class plays in our lives and that of our congregations and organizations. Founded in 2013, we have helped UU congregations, organizations and individuals from across the United States – from New Hampshire to Washington state and from Arizona to Michigan – discover the gifts they bring from their class background, bridge class differences, and begin to build more class-aware, class-inclusive faith communities.

How Change Happens

Through Class Conversations, Unitarian Universalist congregations and organizations:

  • Become familiar with the concepts of class and classism.
  • Engage in self-reflection on individual class backgrounds and learned attitudes and behaviors.
  • Consider policies and practices that benefit more affluent people and communities at the expense of others.
  • Examine the rationale and culture that supports these systems and the widening wealth and income gap over the past 30 years.
  • Celebrate class diversity and the strengths and challenges inherent in each group’s experience.

Mission Statement

Unitarian Universalist (UU) Class Conversations educates UUs about class awareness and inculsion, empowering our religious movement to dismantle classism within our congregations and organizations in order to bring a fairer and more equitable world.

  • GA "Living the Intersection of Class and Race"

    June 22, 2017

    In America today, the intersection of class and race can no longer be ignored. Our workshop will explore how class and race combine to shape one’s life experiences and worldview. With this understanding, we’ll look at how UUs can create a culture of radical hospitality and strong intercultural partnerships. Presented by Kellie Kelly, Rev. Lee Paczulla, Rev. Darrick Jackson, and Chris Crass.
