    February 2, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

    First Sundays for Anti-Racism and Anti-Oppression
    Racial Identity Caucusing & Potluck

    First Sunday of Every Month | 12:00 to 2:00 pm

    Starr King Room

    All are welcome. Potluck begins as soon as possible after worship service.
    No need to bring food to participate. Childcare available upon request.

    Racial identity is not shaped in a neutral environment. Caucusing provides supportive space where:

    · Self-identified people of color explore how their identity forms in response to racial oppression.

    · People who identify as white explore how their identity forms in response to white supremacy.

    · People who identify as multiracial with white European ancestry may participate with the caucus of their choice or create another.

    As people of faith on a spiritual journey toward wholeness, we gather to understand the dynamics of racial identity and to overcome barriers and oppression created by an individual, institutional, and cultural racism.

    We warmly invite you to join us!

    Sponsored by Journey Toward Wholeness Transformation Team. For more info contact jtw@uuoakland.org.
