Allies for Racial Equity

We are all called to take bold steps to undo white supremacy in our faith communities.

Allies for Racial Equity disrupts oppression, uproots white supremacy, and plants seeds of justice. This is a ministry of faith which leads all who participate to spiritual growth and wholeness. We honor each other’s humanity and capacity for growth by offering ourselves and each other grace and accountability.

With ongoing upheavals in Unitarian Universalism, many of us have answered the call to dismantle white supremacy in our Faith. More and more, specific, directed  support for white UUs engaged in racial justice efforts has become critical to carrying the work forward. We often feel isolated, disheartened, and under assault; being in supportive community is a necessary act of self care, sometimes even self preservation.

ARE’s Mission

We are building an antiracist movement of white Unitarian Universalists working to:

  • Understand whiteness and privilege;
  • Unlearn and challenge white supremacy; and
  • Confront racism in ways that are accountable to communities of color.
