Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of the Peninsula (Newport News, VA) 8114
What is your suggestion or idea?
I would like to propose that the words “racism and” from the sentence included in the Justice Value. The sentence would then read:
We covenant to dismantle all forms of systemic oppression.
What is the reason for your amendment idea?
I believe that by emphasizing racism we weaken our stance on other forms of oppression such as poverty or misogyny.
Have you discussed this idea with your congregation or other UUs?
I have discussed this proposal with a group at our weekly Forum. Some agreed and others did not.
