Led by Rev. Sam Trumbore and Jaye Holly
Eight Tuesdays at 7:30pm, meeting on Zoom, beginning January 19, 2021
Our wounds, trauma, fears, misperceptions, misunderstandings, and deficits of imagination and compassion are some of the forces that prevent us from diligently working to dismantle the legacy of racism that continues to warp American culture and feed systems of oppression. Both White-identified people and Black, Indigenous and People of Color have inner work to do that empowers and supports the outer transformative work of dismantling these systems. The goal is for everyone to get free.
The Racial Healing Handbook by Dr. Anneliese A. Singh (2019) will be our source for “Practical activities to help you challenge privilege, confront systemic racism, & engage in collective healing.” Singh has designed a curriculum that is for everyone. She believes we need to heal from racism together. The Racial Healing Handbook, is available and displayed at The Book House in Stuyvesant Plaza (518.489.4761), on their book club wall. If you mention Albany UU, you’ll get a 20% club discount!
Please register through the office using the email: firstname.lastname@example.org or call/text Rev. Sam at 518-366-4532. Note that you’ll need to get a copy of the book for the class. Each week there will be exercises you’ll need to complete before you attend. Please sign up ONLY if you are willing to do the self-reflective, written preparation (worksheets) ahead of each class. There will be little lecture or content presented. This class will focus on personal sharing in small groups with the goal of inner healing for everyone.
