  • Bring Kara Home: Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women

    Sunday, January 26th 

    with Sheridan Seabody-McNeil

    One of the last known places that Kara Mauai was seen was Selfridge, North Dakota on November 8 2019, on the Standing Rock reservation. Kara is a beloved member of her community and a mother to three children, who miss her terribly. Sheridan Seaboy-McNeil, a spokesperson for Kara’s family, will join us and talk about the search for Kara and the epidemic of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, which began at the point of first contact with colonizing Europeans.

    “When you dehumanize a person it’s easier to hurt them because you don’t see them as a human, you don’t see them as a mother, as an auntie, as a grandma, as a daughter. You just see them as a thing you can take and you can hurt,” said Sheridan at a recent panel focused on the crisis. Sheridan will talk with us about how we can help find Kara and get engaged.

  • Whose History is it Anyway?

    Explore the history of Unitarianism, Universalism and UUism in this five-week class.  Using an anti-colonialist, multicultural lens, we’ll look beyond the traditional, dusty facts of history and examine to see how our faith was born and how it has developed and evolved over the years.  We have paid to join a five part webinar series led by Rev. Connie Simon. Class will meet at the Fellowship. Come to one, some or all.

  • Book Discussion

    Join us for a book discussion of White Fragility by Robin DiAngelo and Michael Dyson

    Written with white people in mind, this book invites people into the work of learning skills to disrupt racism as a Unitarian Universalist faith commitment and practice. The class will open paths for white participants coming to terms with their own and others’ fragile, defensive, and coded responses when a conversation turns to race. It invites examination of the ways that conversations about race, either interracially or among white people, can—whether one is aware or not—reinforce racial hierarchy. 

    All sessions are at 12:00 noon at the Fellowship.


    March 22
    March 29
    April 5

    Please read the entire book by the first session. Participants will buy or borrow book on their own.  See Rev. Sollie for information.
