Take Our Poll


Now More Than Ever

With divisive, biased language becoming the new normal, hate crimes increasing, and deadly police profiling of African Americans, Class Conversation’s work to bridge class and racial differences takes on a new urgency.

Some national figures paint a picture of the United States and the world in dystopian hues, but we know through our critical work on class and race that our faith community is creating a world that respects the interdependence of all.

Join us in a Class Conversations Organizing for Change initiative near you.

Thanks to the efforts of more than 55 contributors to our Create Justice – Not Walls Faithify Campaign, Class Conversations exceeded our goal of $3,000 by more than $1,000 to raise $4,085 by the December 30, 2017 deadline. Campaign contributors included UUs and fellow travelers who donated funds of whatever denomination was right for them as well as those who also, or in lieu of funds, shared information about the campaign on social media. through email, newsletters and word of mouth. Thank you all!


 Exploring Class and Classism

UU Class ConversationWorkshop participants in discussions provides Unitarian Universalist congregations and organizations with the tools and language to explore class and classism through a distinctly UU lens.

Building upon our faith community’s ongoing diversity work – from race to gender to sexual orientation to gender identity – the project aims to produce more welcoming congregations while strengthening our shared commitment to social justice.

    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.
