Through brief presentation and lots of small group conversation, we will:
explore the systemic issues that were at play in the search for a Lead for the Southern Region as outlined in the UUA Commission on Institutional Change’s “Findings Related to the Southern Regional Lead Hiring Decision, Spring 2017,”
apply the Commission’s findings and recommendations to realities at the congregational level, and
identify possible steps congregations can take to decenter whiteness and to center individuals and communities with marginalized identities and experience.
