Race: "The Power of an Illusion" documentary
 This three-part documentary by California Newsreel is important for understanding the history of racialization in America and how racial categories came about that we often inaccurately equate with biology. InterVarsity has purchased the rights to stream this documentary online for three years. 

UUCQ Anti-Racism Reading Group 
Are you a racist? 

Check one: 

☐ Yes ☐ No ☐ Maybe ☐ I don't know 

Come to the UUCQ Anti-Racism Reading Group to help you figure out your answer. 

Our first UU Principle is to honor the inherent worth and dignity of every person. This group has been formed to offer participants the opportunity to learn about and discuss racism in a safe environment. Our goal is to educate, open our hearts and minds, and grow spiritually.
