Announcing the formation of the
Racial Justice Subcommittee!
Meeting via Zoom on Saturday,
February 5, 2022 at 1:00 PM

“We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.”
– Dr. Martin Luther King

We are pleased to announce the re-establishment of JAM’s Racial Justice Subcommittee.  We are compelled by our UU Principles as well as recent events in our country to understand our role in a white supremacy culture and take action to dismantle it.

The areas we will focus on are:

1.       Education – to offer opportunities for our congregation to become more informed around the issues of racial justice and intersectionality.  This can be accomplished through readings (e.g. books, essays, poems); movies and videos by and about prominent racial and social justice advocates; opportunities for us to explore new perspectives through dialogue and storytelling; and speakers from our Palm Beach and UU communities.

2.      Introspection – to examine our internal policies, programs and procedures through a racial justice lens and explore new ways to apply our learning to how we “do church.”

3.      Action – to inspire action from an anti-racist point of view such as partnering with other organizations that share our values and mission; finding out how we can best help our neighbors and offering our members meaningful volunteer opportunities.
