Unitarian Universalism calls us towards cherishing a pluralistic world, a world in which difference is honored and celebrated rather than tolerated. Like the process of cutting and polishing stone, learning to appreciate rather than accept differences in race, ethnicity, gender identity/expression, sexual orientation, and class can be challenging. This workshop will give participants opportunities to do personal work on internalized and external oppressions as well as provide concrete ways to bring new learnings and tools into everyday life.
