Justice Ministry and Public

Witness Mosaic Makers: Toward Vital Anti-Racist, Multicultural Ministries

Presented by: Dr. Janice Marie-Johnson, Co-Director of Ministries and Faith Development UUA

This first New England Regional Mosaic Makers gathering will include dynamic worship, the co-creation of brave space, brief presentations, and lots of opportunity for rich conversation as we explore and experience together how to do anti-racist, multicultural ministry in and with our congregations. The event is designed to bring a racial equity and inclusion lens to congregational leaders as they work to transform their culture and embody Beloved Community.

The Justice Ministry Team requests the congregation to continue to discuss making a congregational justice statement. This process can help us communicate among ourselves to find collective justice initiatives and share them with the larger community.

Please participate in our on-line poll even if you participated our paper survey last year.
