BFUU occasionally gets information for special events hosted by other UU’s. While we don't have the capacity to share all UU events, we will include flyers or information here as we can, when appropriate.
From Pam Tellew of Together We Will Albany Berkeley:
These events share effective ways we can address situations when someone makes a racist comment or questions the reality of racism, whether in our personal or work lives. They are led by Dr. David Campt, a nationally recognized expert in race relations and civic engagement, who uses brain science and communications research to teach the most effective ways to engage others on issues of race. I especially like that his approach doesn't use shame and blame, but instead uses empathy, storytelling and active listening to make change in our world.
Here's the event line-up:
