Expressions in Color Wraps Up

Expressions in Color, the new pre-Opus overnight retreat for Young Adults of Color co-sponsored by DRUUMM YAYA and C*UUYAN wrapped up this afternoon at the First Unitarian Church of Des Moines.  Keynote speakers Robette Dias and Thuan Nguyen spoke to a group of 12 who came from across the country.  Robette gave a presentation on the history of People of Color organizing in Unitarian Universalism, and Thuan facilitated activities on Saturday that culminated in the group developing an analysis of the state of race in Unitarian Universalism, goals and strategies for creating the Unitarian Universalist community we wish and hope for.  These notes will be sent to DRUUMM YAYA and C*UUYAN for consideration, and hopefully endorsement to the wider UUA, DRUUMM and UU Congregations.
