JOURNEY TO WHOLENESS
Racial Justice Select Committee
Chair: Jayanti Chapot
Journey To Wholeness/ Racial Justice Select Committee is a Board Appointed committee charged to educate and promote racial justice efforts and working to dismantle white supremacy in our congregation and beyond. The committee coordinates and produces programs that serve this mission.
Our hope is to offer resources that aid people in their journey to understanding better the issues of racial equity and white supremacy and the work within ourselves and among us. We are open to suggestions of resources you have found useful and you can email us those at firstname.lastname@example.org. We'd like to share some resources that we've found helpful for your journey and consideration. Here's a link (click here) to our evolving list of resources. Below too you will see some videos produced as part of our journey at UUSF --- Our "Too White Zone" skits and the interviews of our BIPOC members that are part of our "Beloved Stories" project.
Mary Jane Mikuriya, Dolores Perez Heilbron, Anish Johnson, Rochelle Fortier Nwadbia, Shulee Ong, Lori Lai UU San Francisco Human Rights Working Group embarked on our “Beloved Stories” video project that gave a few people of color, within a congregation of hundreds, a chance to talk about their UUSF experience and share their stories with fellow congregants. Some of the interviewees talk about their childhood memories including some heartfelt stories of enduring systemic racism and their paths to personal and professional accomplishments as adults. All interviewees discuss their lives as Unitarian Universalists in their own unvarnished and authentic voices. The video produced in 2019 features members of our HRWG. Special thanks to Shulee Ong and Lori Lai for their contributions in the production of this special project.
