Unitarian Universalist Association, Multicultural Growth & Witness
“Multicultural Growth & Witness seeks to make Unitarian Universalism a welcoming, inclusive, empowering, and just faith for Unitarian Universalists who identify as bisexual, gay, lesbian, and/or transgender; economically oppressed; Latina/Latino and Hispanic; multiracial families; people of color; and people with disabilities. We support Unitarian Universalist congregations in building and sustaining justice-seeking, inclusive, multicultural faith communities.
Ministries of this staff group focus on advocacy, education, and support related to policies, practices, and programs that support leadership development, community building, and organizing among constituents identified above. In addition, Multicultural Growth & Witness works collaboratively with Unitarian Universalist Association staff groups, and consults with continental committees, affiliates, and constituents to develop resources that educate congregations about how to dismantle institutional and cultural ableism, classism, heterosexism/homophobia, and racism.”
