With ongoing upheavals in Unitarian Universalism, many of us have answered the call to dismantle white supremacy in our Faith. More and more, specific, directed  support for white UUs engaged in racial justice efforts has become critical to carrying the work forward. We often feel isolated, disheartened, and under assault; being in supportive community is a necessary act of self care, sometimes even self preservation.

ARE supports members and congregations by providing opportunities for:

Community Development

  • Ways to Stay Connected

  • Training & Workshops 

  • Strategic Consulting 

Online Learning and Discussion

  • Circles & Cohorts 

  • Topical Discussion Groups 

  • Communal Spiritual Support 

Individualized, 1-on-1 Support 

  • Personalized & Team Coaching 

  • Coaching for Action 

  • Chaplaincy & Pastoral Support 

We are building an anti-racist movement of white Unitarian Universalists to dismantle white supremacy in ourselves, our congregations, and communities.
