How We're Organized


Appendix I

by Kenneth Jones and Tema Okun (2001).

This article informs the intentionality and functioning of the ARE Leadership Collective.

It provides additional insight to ARE's organizational values and goals, particularly power sharing, individual and group accountability, embracing difference, and collective, consensus-oriented decision making.  

We strongly recommend all Unitarian Universalists become familiar with the characteristics of white supremacy culture, reflect on how they show up in your congregations and yourselves, and work on cultivating the antidotes laid out by Jones and Okun.

Appendix II

At the 2010 ARE conference in Long Beach, California, attendees worked with Dr. Shelley Tochluk to develop a list of ways in which accountability is put into action. 

These were refined through small group processes, finalized by the ARE Steering Team, and subsequently reviewed and approved by DRUUMM leaders and members. 

Appendix III

In 2016-17, a team of four steering committee members used these consensus resources as guiding documents to develop a process for making decisions in a more equitable and sustainable way.
