#452 | Mary Ellen Gonzales | "Work to dismantle"

Submission 452
Mary Ellen Gonzales
The UU Congregation of Santa Fe NM (Santa Fe, NM) 6122

What is your suggestion or idea?

Under ““Justice””, add, ““work to”” between covenant and to dismantle so it reads
““We covenant to work to dismantle racism””

What is the reason for your amendment idea?

It is impossible to promise to do something as enormous as dismantling racism. To make this sort of promise is to set ourselves up for failure, and we know it.

Have you discussed this idea with your congregation or other UUs?

My minister, Rev Gail Marriner
