3rd Fridays, 12-1:30 pm
What legacy will you leave your beloved: your children, grandchildren, congregation, community, and/or country about how you worked to dismantle systemic racism during your lifetime? What will you bequeath to your beloved? What is your hope for their future, for Beloved Community?
Join Rev. Tina Squire and Steve Kraynak on the third Friday of each month for a justice-centered book discussion from the perspective of our Unitarian Universalist values. Here we will use reading, conversation, and writing to answer these questions.

Purchasing your books from the UUA Bookstore, InSpirit, supports the work of our faith tradition.
Book GroUUp is free to all our monthly sustaining donors. If you wish to join but aren't a donor, you can contribute a suggested donation of $30 for all four groups. If you aren't financially able to donate, join us anyway!
Reparations Note: White participants are encouraged to consider paying an additional $30, in recognition of the historic legacy of racist economic policies and the ways in which generational wealth and greater access to economic opportunity have privileged white people as a group for hundreds of years. We will donate these extra funds to Black-led organizations working for racial justice.
Interdependence Note: Regardless of your racial identity, if your class privilege or finances allow you to pay more so that others may pay less, please consider adding an additional contribution to your total. We will use these extra funds to provide scholarships for racial justice programming.
Equity Note: Regardless of your racial identity, scholarships are available to those who need them. Select the free option and join us!
